is all but officially cleared.

"He's great," Streeter said about Watson. "Talking to Danny Poole, he's all but officially cleared through Dr. Bowman. He just has to have one last clearance. He's doing everything this summer, so he's as cleared as he can possibly be. He told me the other day that he feels stronger in that leg than he ever has, even before the injury. He feels great. I'm pumped about that. It reflects a great decision by he, our trainers and Coach Swinney to have that surgery when he had it. He had it around December 12th and did not play in the bowl game, so that decision looking back was a good decision looking back."

Watson had an assortment of injuries during his rookie season including a broken collarbone, fractured bone in his right hand and a torn ACL late in the season.

In his rookie campaign, Watson completed 67.9% of his passes for 1,466 yards (10.7 per attempt) with 14 touchdowns and only two interceptions for a tremendous quarterback rating of 188.57. He also had five scores rushing. Another superlative is that he had a nation's best 10.7 yards per pass attempt.
