Swinney updates Watson's injury status on Wednesday
Clemson coach Dabo Swinney spoke to reporters during the ACC media teleconference on Wednesday morning and shared injury news on star quarterback Deshaun Watson.
"He's looked good," Swinney said. "He has a pretty good bruise there. We took it slow with him Sunday and Monday an did a good bit more yesterday and he'll be full-go today. He's doing good. We expect him to go."
Watson had an impressive 13-yard run late in the second quarter against Syracuse. However, he stayed in one more play, and then Watson left the game holding his shoulder. He finished the game with 13-for-16 passing for 169 yards and two passing touchdowns while also having seven rushes for 39 yards and a rushing score. He said that he had ice on his shoulder for precautionary measures after he left the game but felt no pain.
For the season, Watson is 204-for-317 for 2497 yards with 24 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. He has 8067 passing yards with 73 passing touchdowns and 25 interceptions at Clemson.
