Clemson held its second and final scrimmage of the preseason on Thursday, marking the first time this month the team has been able to practice inside “Death Valley”. The constant rains in the Upstate had prevented the team from working out at Memorial Stadium prior to the scrimmage.
Head coach Dabo Swinney and defensive coordinator Brent Venables met with the media following the scrimmage to recap the two and half hour session. Swinney said wide receiver Justyn Ross was tackled and hit for the first time since undergoing spinal fusion surgery. Swinney noted the Ross had, “a great day and it couldn’t have worked out any better.”
Swinney also touched on quarterback D.J. Uiagalelei’s performance, while praising the progress of the Tigers’ special teams.
