Clemson coach Dabo Swinney announced Tuesday that wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins will be ready for tomorrow night’s Orange Bowl matchup with West Virginia. Hopkins suffered a minor concussion in a car accident last week. The incident happened when Hopkins was en route to catch the team bus to the airport for the bowl game. He missed the charter but joined the team the next day.
“Nuke, everybody has asked about Nuke,” Swinney said. “He’s practiced the last three days or so, and he’s good.”
Hopkins is the team’s second leading receiver. He is also the starting punt returner.
Swinney also said offensive lineman Phillip Price’s injured knee will not keep him off the field against West Virginia.
