CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Coach Dabo Swinney said one of Clemson’s leading defensive players, linebacker James Skalski, will miss several games with a groin injury.
Swinney said Tuesday that Skalski will have arthroscopic surgery. The coach is unsure how long Skalski will be out.
Skalski missed last week’s 47-21 victory over Syracuse. Swinney said Skalski had an MRI that revealed the injury.
The fifth-year senior from Sharpsburg, Georgia, was Clemson’s second-leading tackler with 105 stops in 2019, his first as a starter. He was second this season, too, before sitting out against the Orange.
