Trevion Thompson injury update

At Tuesday's press conference, Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney said wide receiver Trevion Thompson suffered a fracture in his wrist in the ACC Championship against Virginia Tech and will miss the rest of the season. Thompson had surgery on the wrist and a pin put in. Thompson will be back for the second half of spring practice according to Swinney.

"I am disappointed for him," Swinney said. "Let me tell you that young man has made a ton of progress. He's already been a good player for us, but he is one of those guys you will look up in a couple of years and you will go 'wow' because he will playing on Sunday like Jaron Brown. Where did this guy come from? That's kind of where Trevion is. He's a developing guy that has two years left and I think when it is all said and done he is going to be an excellent player. So just disappointed for him to miss out on this opportunity, but he did have a good year. He made some really good progress for his development."

Thompson had 11 catches for 108 yards and a TD in 2016.
