Wiggins suffered a knee injury at the end of Clemson’s loss to Florida State back in Week 4. He was not able to play in the Tigers’ road win vs. Syracuse last weekend.
When healthy, Wiggins is a key player in Clemson’s secondary. So far this season, he has accounted for 4 tackles, 1 sack, 1 interception and 2 pass deflections.
Williams has been out since Clemson’s Week 3 win over Florida Atlantic with an ankle injury. If he’s able to play, he will be one of Clemson’s top options at wide receiver vs. the Demon Deacons. He has 15 catches for 145 yards and 2 touchdowns so far this season.
Clemson will face Wake Forest at 3:30 p.m. ET on Saturday.
