Clemson’s bye week came at an ideal time.
Not only were the Tigers looking to regroup from an upset loss at Syracuse, but quarterback Kelly Bryant had exited the game with an injury for the second week in a row. Getting Bryant back on the field became the top priority for Clemson during the off week.
According to Matt Connolly of The State, it appears Bryant is back on track to play in the Tigers’ Week 9 game against Georgia Tech.
Connolly reported that Clemson co-offensive coordinator Tony Elliot addressed Monday and said that Bryant spent the majority of last week working with the strength staff and trainers to rehab from an ankle injury suffered against Wake Forest and a concussion suffered against Syracuse. However, Elliott said “as far as I know” Bryant has cleared the concussion protocol and should be back on the practice field Monday.
“Kelly was with the strength staff most of the week just working on getting himself back into playing shape, but was over there for some of the periods just to make sure he’s up on the game plan,” Elliott said. “We’re anticipating he’s going to be back today and excited to see where he’s at.”
Clemson will likely face a tough test in Georgia Tech, which nearly knocked off No.8 Miami in Week 7 and beat Wake Forest by 14 points last Saturday.
