Clemson was without several key players in its 48-20 victory over Louisiana Tech on Saturday night.

Safety Andrew Mukuba, defensive lineman Tré Williams, defensive lineman Tyler Davis and cornerback Nate Wiggins all missed the game due to injury. Cornerback Sheridan Jones suffered a stinger and had to leave the game early.

Jones’ issue isn’t a longterm problem, Swinney said after the game. The good news for the Tigers is most of Clemson’s injuries this week seem to be short term issues.

Swinney said Williams was held out with a “sore knee.” He said Davis potentially could have played but Clemson decided to hold him back. Swinney added that Wiggins is dealing with a hip flexor injury.

Perhaps the most notable update was with Mukuba. Swinney said he suffered a dislocated elbow in practice this week and will have to play with a brace moving forward. He said Mukuba avoided any broken bones.

Clemson also played this game without defensive end Xavier Thomas, who has yet to make his 2022 season debut. Thomas suffered a foot injury during fall camp and is till recovering.
