Dabo Swinney just wrapped up his Sunday teleconference. Clemson clinched the ACC Atlantic division Saturday with a 31-28 win over Wake Forest. They will play at N.C. State this weekend and close out the regular season the following with against rival USC. The Tigers are 9-1 heading into this weekend’s game against the Wolfpack.
On the injury front, Swinney said wide receiver Sammy Watkins’ sore AC joint is doing better today. Watkins didn’t play the final quarter against Wake because of the shoulder injury. Swinney doesn’t expect Watkins to practice the next couple of days, but he hasn’t ruled him out for the game against State. Left tackle Phillip Price will not play this weekend. He injured his knee against Wake. There is no ligament damage so Price could return for the USC game in two weeks.
