Swinney: Bryant ready to go for Syracuse

October 11, 2017 - 10:12 pm

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said injured quarterback Kelly Bryant will be "ready to go" when the second-ranked Tigers play Syracuse on Friday night.

Bryant came out in the third quarter of last week's 28-14 victory over Wake Forest because of a left ankle sprain. Bryant wore a walking boot in postgame and said he uncertain about his status.

But Swinney said Wednesday that Bryant had practiced and was prepared to play when Clemson (6-0, 4-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) heads north to play the Orange (3-3, 1-1).

Bryant has hardly missed a beat this season in taking over for two-time Heisman Trophy finalist Deshaun Watson. Bryant has passed for 1,259 yards and four touchdowns and run for seven scores to help the Tigers defeat top-15 opponents Auburn, Louisville and Virginia Tech.
