Sunday Clemson Football Update

Defensive tackle Todd McClinton suffered a sprained neck against Maryland and was taken to the Oconee Memorial Hospital in Seneca after he was taken from the field on a cart. Fortunately, all tests were negative.

He was back in the Clemson training room today and attended the Clemson team meeting on Sunday afternoon wearing a neck brace. His status for the South Carolina game will be updated later in the week.

Cedric Johnson, OG, suffered pinched nerve in his left shoulder. Like McClinton, also came to Clemson team meeting on Sunday in a neck brace. Questionable for South Carolina. If he can not start, Nathan Gillespie will make his first career start in his place.

Travis Pugh, DB, pulled groin muscle against Maryland, questionable.

Chad Jasmin, RB, missed Maryland game with pulled groin muscle. Should return for South Carolina.
