Johnson will miss Humanitarian Bowl

Clemson reserve guard Cedric Johnson will miss the Humanitarian Bowl game against Louisiana Tech due to a torn MCL in his left knee.

Johnson suffered the injury during practice on Thursday. An MRI revealed the injury. He could also have damage to his ACL.

Johnson, who played in all 11 games on special teams and in three games as an offensive guard behind T.J. Watkins, will be reevaluated after the bowl game in January when he has arthrocropic surgery. At that time it will be determined if he needs further surgery. His status for spring practice will not be known until after his surgery in January.
