Clemson fans tightened up a little bit on Saturday when star quarterback Deshaun Watson left the game with what looked like a serious shoulder injury. He wasn’t needed in the second half against Syracuse considering it was a 54-0 rout.
Watson hasn’t been going too hard in practice and that’s been a concern for some people, but in his weekly press conference, coach Dabo Swinney said that his QB will be just fine.
“He’s looked good,” Swinney said. “He has a pretty good bruise there. We took it slow with him Sunday and Monday and did a good bit more yesterday and he’ll be full-go today. He’s doing good. We expect him to go.”
He left the game one play after a 13-yard run once he realized he couldn’t quite throw the ball how he wanted to on that next play. He said that he had ice on his shoulder for precautionary measures after he left the game but felt no pain.
