Clemson Football loses another player to injury
Head coach Dabo Swinney announced Sunday that tight end Sage Ennis has been lost for the rest of the season.
Ennis was having his best season as a Tiger. Considering the recovery time for a torn ACL, it seems likely he will miss spring practices, but hopefully will be ready for the 2024 regular season.
Swinney also took responsibility for the failed fake punt that put the Tigers in an early hole against Georgia Tech.
