After Friday morning's practice, head coach Dabo Swinney said he'll be looking for consistency when the Tigers take the field for the second intra-squad scrimmage of preseason camp.
"There were some guys who did some really good things in that scrimmage Tuesday. We'll see if they can put it show up again and be consistent," he said. "The guys that made some mistakes, have they corrected it? Can they cut those things down? Those are things you're looking for tomorrow."
A short list of players are inactive for Saturday morning's closed scrimmage.
Wide receiver Bryce McNeal suffered a sprained ankle Friday and could be limited, though the injury doesn't appear to be serious. Cornerback Coty Sensabaugh missed Friday's practice with a sprained foot. He's expected to be held out.
Running back D.J. Howard remains questionable. He wore a green practice jersey on Friday.
"It's just that time of camp where you start getting some guys dinged up. For the most part, we're hanging in there pretty well," Swinney said.
All-American safety DeAndre McDaniel was back at practice Thursday night and Friday morning. He's been cleared for a "full go" on Saturday.
Along with an emphasis on the return game, Swinney said much of the scrimmage work will be situational.
"Tomorrow will be the first time we'll do some two-minute and goal line situation live in the stadium," Swinney said. "We practiced it this week. I'm anxious to see that out there as well."
Immediately following the scrimmage, both current and former Clemson football players will meet for a barbecue in the West End Zone. Former Clemson coach Danny Ford will also be in attendance.
"We started it last year. It was a lot of fun. I think the word has spread and we're going to have a lot of food," Swinney said. "It's a great opportunity for our guys to build some bridges for future days when they can't play anymore and make some contacts with some people that they obviously have a lot in common with."
