"He was our biggest loss," Swinney said. "The bone that he broke is a very small bone in his finger in the top part of his hand. He will have four screws go in. It is a quicker healing bone. We do not know when he will be back. We expect him to be back at some point in the season. When he is back, we will be excited."

Swinney thought that it is possible to get him back for the Georgia Tech game.

"Certainly within the timeframe...out for BC and Syracuse and then bye week and Wake, so it certainly could happen," Swinney said. "One positive is that this is a quicker healing bone, and they have to splint it and not cast and then can take it off every day and do rehab with it and work with it."

In other injury news, offensive lineman Joe Gore (appendicitis) will practice this week. Wide receiver Charone Peake had his knee scoped on Friday and took out a blob that was causing the irritation. Swinney is hopeful that will relieve his pain and get him going back in the right direction.
