had torn his ACL during yesterday's practice. It was the same knee that he injured in high school.

Swinney said: "My heart breaks for O.J. He is a guy who has persevered and chased his dreams. Wasn't necessarily going to play for us this weekend but was in the mix. We thought it was the meniscus but MRI came back today and it was the ACL. This game is not fair and you have to deal with those types of things."
