Clemson freshman defensive end Joe Gore suffered a knee injury in workout last week and has had or will need surgery a source said Saturday night. The injury is expected to sideline Gore for the season. Clemson Sports Information Director Tim Bourret had no information about Gore and said the earliest anything could be confirmed would be Monday.
Gore signed with the Tigers last February and enrolled in January. He participated in spring practice and was listed as the third team defensive end behind Malliciah Goodman and Kourtnei Brown on the post spring practice depth chart.
