Dabo Swinney announces season-ending injury for key WR
Dabo Swinney confirmed that wide receiver Cole Turner will be missing the rest of the 2023 season on the coach’s weekly call on Sunday. Turner tore three adductor muscles against FAU.
Turner played in two games for Clemson this season before the injury. Swinney hated the injury for Turner, stating that the wideout is going to be a superstar.
Swinney noted that Turner’s whole career is ahead of the Clemson wideout.
“This kid is gonna be a superstar … Really hate that for him,” said Swinney. “Part of his story.”

Turner was a former 3-star wideout in the 2022 class out of Birmingham (Al.) Vestavia Hills. Buffalo was the only other team that offered Turner as a recruit.
Turner appeared in three games for Clemson last season. He accounted for 161 yards receiving in those games.
The Tigers went on to win their Week 3 game vs. FAU 48-14.
Although Turner is still early into his college career, a season-ending injury like this is very unfortunate.
