During Thursday night’s 55-31 over the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, the seventh-ranked Clemson Tigers lost quarterback Tajh Boyd to a collarbone injury.
Later reports also said that Boyd injured his left shoulder at the end of the third quarter. Boyd, a redshirt senior, was 20-of-26 for 340 yards with four touchdowns and one interception while rushing for 43 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries before leaving the game. Boyd was replaced by junior Cole Stoudt, who went two-of-two for 35 yards and rushed for 28 yards and a touchdown on four attempts. Chad Kelly, the nephew of NFL Hall-of-Famer Jim Kelly, also got into the game, completing one-of-two passes for eight yards.
According to the Associated Press, Tigers’ head coach Dabo Swinney says Boyd will practice this week and will play when the Tigers host the Citadel on Saturday.
On the season, Boyd is 212-of-318 for 2,960 yards with 24 touchdowns and seven interceptions. He’s rushed for another eight touchdowns.
Stoudt has performed well filling in for Boyd. He’s 44-of-55 for 353 yards with six total touchdowns and no interceptions.
