Dye tears Achilles

Redshirt freshman running back Tyshon Dye suffered a torn Achilles tendon during a workout on Friday morning.

The red-shirt freshman from Elberton, GA will miss spring practice, but Head Coach Dabo Swinney hopes to have him back in time for the fall season.

Dye came to Clemson from Elbert County Comprehensive High School in Elberton, GA. He was rated by Scout.com as a four-star prospect coming out of high school. For the class of 2013, he was ranked as the No. 27 running back in the country.
