Clemson’s Mike Williams returns to practice to help coaches

Clemson star wide receiver Mike Williams has traded in his helmet and pads for a whistle and neck brace, for the time being.

It is open to question the duration of Williams’ recovery after fracturing a bone in his neck. The injury though, does not stop him from being apart of the team. He was back at practice this evening, taking on a different aspect of the game.

“Coach Mike” will be helping out co-offensive coordinator Jeff Scott and the rest of the coaching staff while he hopes for a speedy recovery.

Williams had 57 receptions for 1,030 yards and six touchdowns last season.

The young receivers, Artavis Scott and Ray-Ray McCloud will have to carry a heavier workload due to Williams’ absence. Their aim should be to listen and apprehend what Williams teaches them.
