CLEMSON – Clemson junior receiver Charone Peake participated in his first full practice of August camp Monday.
Peake is recovering since tearing a knee ligament during practice Sept. 10, 2013. The injury required a second surgery in July.
Peake initially was scheduled to open practice two weeks ago, during the second week of camp. However, his debut was delayed cautiously.
"I just didn't want to pop out there and re-injure myself. I wanted to be 100 percent comfortable when I'm out there on the field," said Peake, a product of Dorman High School who has caught 37 passes for 327 yards and three touchdowns through his career at Clemson.
Peake has been able to participate in conditioning and individual drills. He said he still must work up to "football shape," but he expects to play in the season opener on Aug. 30 at Georgia.
"That's my main goal right now, to become 100 percent," he said. "I've got a little less than two weeks, but I feel like I'll be ready to go."
