CLEMSON, S.C. - Dabo Swinney's Clemson Tigers held their second major scrimmage of the spring on Monday afternoon. The Tigers worked for a little over two hours in the indoor practice facility. The facility continued to serve the program well as it rained most of the day in Clemson.
Freshman quarterback Deshaun Watson suffered a slight crack in a collarbone near the end of the scrimmage. He will be out for three weeks, which means he will not play in Clemson's Spring Game on Saturday.
"He played the entire scrimmage," said Swinney. "I am not really sure when he suffered the injury and I was not aware of it until after I met with the media after practice.
"This is a shame because he was having an outstanding spring," said Swinney of Watson, one of the top high school quarterbacks in the nation last year. "Fortunately this is not a serious injury. I hate that he will miss the Spring Game. I know a lot of people were anxious to see him make his debut in Death Valley.
"But he will be fine by the time summer workouts start again in May. He does not require surgery."
The Tigers ran 90 plays during the scrimmage that featured short-yardage, two-minute drills, drives coming off the one-yard-line, goal line and overtime situations.
