"Deshaun is available for the bowl game," Swinney said during his Russell Athletic Bowl teleconference on Sunday. "We are going to make a decision. We might go ahead and do surgery and try to get a three-week head start on his rehab. He has a good eight months of rehab and we want him available for skills and drills this summer. So we will visit on that, and make a decision in the next day or so on that.”
Watson tore his ACL in practice before the South Carolina game, but played anyway and led the Tigers to a 35-17 win over the Gamecocks.
