Etta-Tawo had played 54 snaps in the first five games, including a season high 18 against Florida Atlantic in the opener. He had two tackles for his 15 snaps against Louisiana Tech. The first game he missed was last Saturday's victory at Wake Forest.
"The most important issue is obviously Etta Etta-Tawo's
general health and well being," said Clemson Head Coach Tommy Bowden.
"Any time you are dealing with the heart you don't take any chances.
"Etta had been doing very well on the field and in school. We
are talking about a young man who had scholarship offers to Stanford,
Vanderbilt and Duke. He is an talented young man. We will do
everything we can to help him."
Etta-Tawo was a Max Emfinger All-American at McEachern High
School in Powerder Springs, GA. A first-team all-state selection, he
played in the Georgia North-South Al-Star game and was named
third-team All-South by Countdown to Signing Day.
Etta-Tawo is eighth different Clemson player to miss action
this year due to injury of illness.
He joins wide receiver Rendrick
Taylor and linebacker Anthony Waters as the third Tiger to be lost
for the season. Linebacker Tramaine Billie is yet to play in a game
this year and will not play against Temple.
Etta-Tawo Out for the Year
