The 2020 Clemson football team will begin spring practice in just a few weeks. Here’s a look at the injury report, according to Coach Dabo Swinney.
The 2020 Clemson football team will begin Mat drills next week and then will begin spring practice in just a couple of weeks.
Clemson Coach Dabo Swinney held his annual press conference on National Signing Day Wednesday and gave several valuable updates on injuries, the incoming freshman class and much more.
Here’s a look at the injury report for Clemson football heading into the spring of 2020.
- DT Nyles Pinckney (ankle fracture)
- CB Andrew Booth (torn patella tendon)
- LB Bryton Constantin (torn ACL)
- OL Blake Vinson (patella injury)
Swinney was unsure if any of the four listed above would be fully available for spring practice. Constantin, who is nursing two ACL tears, is expected to do some individual workouts this spring, but he’ll likely not be cleared as 100 percent until later this summer.
Nyles Pinckney missed the National Championship game with an ankle fracture and it’s unclear what his timetable for return will be. Pinckney could potentially be back towards the end of spring practice for some non-contact drills and things of that nature, but I wouldn’t expect him to be fully cleared until later in the summer, maybe closer to the beginning of fall camp.
The good news is that CB Andrew Booth is expected to be able to participate in spring practice. Swinney noted that he’ll be limited early, but should be back towards the end of the spring sessions.
Overall, the Tigers seem to be in pretty good shape as far as injuries are concerned moving forward. It’d be nice to have these four guys back in time for spring practice, but it’s obviously much more important that they rehab properly and come back at 100 percent.
