Clemson WR Charone Peake tears his ACL

So far this season has gone about as well as possible for the Clemson Tigers. First, they knocked off the then fifth ranked Georgia 38-35 and followed it up with an easy 52-13 victory over South Carolina State.

Aside from a potential injury to quarterback Tajh Boyd (he was fine, just had the wind knocked out of him), everything has been smooth and the Tigers look like legitimate national title contenders.

They got the first bit of bad news Wednesday.

Clemson’s SID (via Shakin in the Southland) announced junior wide receiver Charone Peake has torn his ACL and will be out for the rest of the season. Through the first two games, Peake had eight catches for 84 yards and a touchdown.

Peake was originally rated a four star recruit and was considered the 11th best receiver prospect in the class of 2011. In his career, Peake has 37 receptions for  327 yards and three touchdowns.

According to Shakin in the Southland, Peake will likely be replaced by Adam Humphries, 5’11 junior, who has seven catches for 53 yards this season.

Clemson has the weekend off before playing North Carolina State a week from Thursday.
