Clemson coach shares update with positive news about team injuries

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney on Wednesday night shared some positive news about injuries and some insight on negative news regarding a transfer.

The No. 24 Tigers (4-2, 3-1 ACC) will play at 3:30 p.m. (ESPN) Saturday at No. 23 Pitt (5-1, 2-0) at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh.

Clemson junior running back Michel “Mikey” Dukes left the team and went into the transfer portal earlier this week. He was a promising player who appeared in 10 games as a freshman but had seen action in only one game this season with two carries for 7 yards against South Carolina State.

“We had a team issue this week with him and he felt like it was time to move on,” Swinney said. “He hasn’t really played. You hate it. But that’s kind of where we are in college football. He was one of the best athletes on this team. It just takes more than that. I wish him nothing but the best. I’ll do whatever I can to help him.”
