Swinney updates the injury status of Deshaun Watson

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney spoke to the media for his postgame press conference and shared an update on star quarterback Deshaun Watson.

"He was ready if we needed him," Swinney said. "Great to see Nick play and play well. He didn't play because it was 30-0 at halftime and we had control of the game. We played 85 guys today and it's a great reward for those to get a chance to go and play."

Swinney said that Watson has a bruised shoulder - "stinger type of deal in his shoulder area."

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.
