was injured in the scrimmage on Monday. It appeared to be his wrist but the extent of the injury is not known at this time.

UPDATE: Chad Morris said he thinks it is just stinger and he will be fine. Morris said since they are allowing the quarterbacks to get hit, all the quarterbacks need to learn to get down in the open field.

UPDATE 2: Clemson released a statement saying Watson suffered a slight crack in a collarbone near the end of the scrimmage and will miss the spring game.

may require surgery to relieve his turf toe.

- Dabo Swinney said that he was impressed by RB Wayne Gallman and DB Cordrea Tankersley in the scrimmage.

- Swinney feels like linebacker Stephone Anthony had a great year last year but is going to take his game to another level this year.

- Swinney said that "we don't have a better football player than Robert Smith."

- Swinney said that safety Jadar Johnson has had a great spring and is currently ahead of Jayron Kearse.

- T.J. Green is playing behind Robert Smith at safety and Swinney calls him one of the best athletes on the team.
