The native of Ironton, OH has already red-shirted and thus his Clemson career is complete. He is on track to graduate in December.
Fry suffered the injury while pass protecting on Clemson's
third offensive play on Saturday evening in the Tigers 31-7 victory
at Death Valley.
A mid-season first-team All-American by Sports
Illustrated.com, Fry was listed by the Football Writers Association
as a preseason All-America candidate and a candidate for the Outland
Trophy. He started each of the first eight games this year for the
10th ranked and 7-1 Tigers and completes his career with 18 starts
and 43 career games played. He was leading the Clemson team in
knockdown blocks this year entering Saturday's game with 62. He
finishes with 215 career knockdown blocks over his four seasons.
"This is another big loss for our football team," said
Clemson Head Coach Tommy Bowden. "He will be difficult to replace on
the field and in terms of senior leadership. When you look at our
high national rankings in rushing, scoring and total offense, Roman
has had a lot to do with it. We will certainly miss him."
Chris McDuffie, a junior from Danville, VA, will move into
the starting lineup at Fry's guard position. McDuffie played 39 snaps
against Georgia Tech after Fry's injury.
Fry is the fifth Clemson player, the fourth starter lost for
the season due to injury. Starting linebacker Tramaine Billie
suffered a broken ankle during the preseason practice in August and
will red-shirt this season. He will return for 2007. Starting
linebacker and 2005 top tackler Anthony Waters suffered a torn ACL in
the opener with Florida Atlantic and is lost for the season.
Starting wide receiver Rendrick Taylor suffered a broken arm
in the win at Wake Forest and is lost for the season. Reserve
defensive tackle Etta Etta Tawo played in the first five games, but
will miss the remainder of the season due to a heart abnormality.
Bowden is optimistic that All-ACC wide receiver Chansi
Stuckey will return to action this Thursday against Virginia Tech
after missing the last three games due to a broken foot suffered in
practice on October 3. Tight end Thomas Hunter suffered an upper
body injury against Georgia Tech and missed the second half of that
game, but he is expected to play against Virginia Tech.
Roman Fry Out for the Season
