Clemson head coach Brad Brownell gave an update on the injury for point guard Shelton Mitchell who sustained a non-contact knee injury in practice and underwent a knee scope procedure on Tuesday.

"The surgery went well. He seems to be doing well," Brownell said on Thursday. "I don't have them frame. I was initially told two to four weeks so we'll see."

Mitchell sat out last season after transferring from Vanderbilt, where he started 11 of 31 games for the Commodores. Mitchell averaged 4.3 points and 3.3 assists per game but also led Vandy with 103 assists.

"I feel really bad for him. He's worked hard," Brownell said.

Brownell also announced that another point guard Ty Hudson would be suspended three to five games for a violation of team rules.

Hudson appeared in 23 games last season, averaging 7.6 minutes and 2.4 points per game.
