Swinney discusses his team's injuries

Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney talked to the media after Friday's practice and discussed the several minor injuries on his football team.

Swinney said that freshman tight end J.C. Chalk was in a walking boot but the injury is not believed to be serious.

"J.C. Chalk came down on his foot wrong when he caught a pass on the sideline, but there's nothing major that I know of right now," Swinney said.

Freshman offensive lineman Matt Ryan was also in a boot on Friday after dropping a weight on his foot.

"Matt Ryan dropped a big 200-pound weight on his toe. I think he smashed his toe in the weight room this morning."

Finally, redshirt junior defensive back Marcus Edmond is day-to-day with a hamstring injury.

"It was the first day of practice," Swinney said. "He just tweaked it, so we're holding him out right now. I'm really proud of Marcus. He's worked his butt off this summer, and he had a great summer. He's disappointed because he's competing for a job. He's not out there and those other guys are competing. He'll be back soon. We'll get him back. It's day-to-day."

Edmond has 7 tackles in 53 snaps so far in his collegiate career.
