Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said Wednesday that redshirt junior Justyn Ross will have surgery on his foot this week that could sideline him for the rest of the season. Swinney said he isn't sure if Ross would play in the bowl game, but he will be ready for training for the NFL Scouting Combine.
"That's the plan. Get him well," Swinney said. "It's not going to take long for him to get back well. We'll see where he is."
The Tigers' top wide receiver had been playing all year with a small stress fracture in his foot, which he re-aggravated Saturday in a win against UConn. Ross exited the game after the first quarter and wore a walking boot and crutches.
