Clemson Tigers leading wide receiver Artavis Scott had a “meniscus procedure” done on his knee after the team’s win over North Carolina in the ACC Championship Game, according to head coach Dabo Swinney via Tony Crumpton of TigerNet.
Swinney stated that Scott had been dealing with the issue for several weeks and was now limited in practice, but would soon be “ready to roll.”
And how much Swinney, Scott’s teammates and Clemson’s fans would love that. Scott caught 84 passes for 805 yards and five touchdowns for the Tigers this season, and keeping up with Oklahoma’s high-octane offense in the Orange Bowl on New Year’s Eve will be critical to Clemson’s hope of competing for a national championship against either Alabama or Michigan State. If Scott is unable to go, then Clemson may have to get creative on offense.
