  • Kelly Bryant Suffers Apparent Ankle Injury vs. Wake Forest

Clemson's dominant defense continued to flex its muscles on Saturday as the Tigers topped Wake Forest 28-14 at Death Valley. He left the game in the third quarter after Travis Etienne's 1-yard touchdown run put Clemson ahead 21-0. Bryant tested his legs with a few short jogs once he came out and remained on the sidelines with teammates.

How that goes will determine if he'll play, Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said. The severity of the injury is unknown - "you never really know about those things", Swinney said.

Bryant threw for 200 yards and a touchdown before coming out. Etienne, a freshman, had 67 yards rushing along with his touchdown. The quarterback limped to the sideline and went to the team's injury tent.

Wake Forest: The Demon Deacons are certainly improved, but not yet ready to take down the Tigers.


Clemson: The Tigers' offense has been tailored to Bryant's penchant to run and its strong quartet of running backs.

Wake Forest kicker Mike Weaver, who had converted all 10 of his field goal attempts this season, missed a 34-yarder late in the first quarter, then misfired on a 50-yard attempt early in the third quarter. I didn't like how we finished, though, but we're playing a lot of guys and we're committed to doing that.

In the end, I believe the Tigers are able to get some points on the board and the defense is able to hold Wake Forest to little-to-no points. TE Cannon Smith caught his first career touchdown pass with 11:48 left in the game. Punter Will Spiers found Cornell Powell for a 5-yard pass completion on fourth-and-4 that gave the Tigers a first down at the Wake Forest 49-yard line. Sophomore Kendall Hinton opened the game for the Demon Deacons. Given the week off, Clawson want confident that Wolford will be back for the Demon Deacons next game in two weeks.

Wake Forest takes next week off before heading to Georgia Tech on October 21.
