Leggett expected to miss 3-4 weeks with knee injury

Posted: Updated:

Clemson, SC—Clemson freshman tight end Jordan Leggett suffered a knee injury in a situational scrimmage on Wednesday morning, but the injury is not season ending. Clemson Head Coach Dabo Swinney received word late during Clemson's evening practice.

The native of Navarre, FL injured an MCL, not his ACL while making a reception during the workout. He does not need surgery and is expected to miss just three-four weeks. He likely will miss the Georgia game on August 31.

"We are two-for-two in recent injuries that could have been serious," said Swinney. "T.J. Green had a knee injury last week that did not end up being serious and now Jordan Leggett. We are fortunate that we will have Jordan back early in the season."

The tight end position has been a big part of the Clemson offense the last two years under offensive coordinator Chad Morris. Clemson tight ends have caught 119 passes for 1390 yards and 21 touchdowns over the last two years, significantly contributing to Clemson's 21-6 record. Clemson has had the first-team All-ACC tight end each of the last two years, Dwayne Allen in 2011 and Brandon Ford in 2012.
