Clemson QB Cleared To Practice

According to the AP, Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd said Tuesday he has been cleared to practice with the strained hip he injured against Boston College that appeared more severe than it turned out.

Boyd sat out Monday’s workout as he recovered from the hard hit by Eagles defensive end Max Hollowayearly in the third quarter of last week’s 36-14 Tigers’ victory. 

Coach Dabo Swinney said Boyd will get all the work with starters as the eighth-ranked Tigers (6-0, 3-0 ACC) prepare to take on Maryland this Saturday.

Boyd said he’s not sore, although he experiences some stiffness in his left hip if he sits too long.
“It was a little scary,” he said. “If you look at it, it definitely could have gone a lot of different ways. But fortunately, it turned out in my favor.”

Boyd has a reputation for toughing out injuries. He tore a knee ligament in high school but played out the season before having surgery. He said teammates and friends have joked with since Saturday, saying that Boyd put on a big display when he was helped off the field and driving to the locker room for someone not hurt all that badly.

“It’s something I’ll probably hear about the rest of my time here,” Boyd said with a laugh.
