Clemson receiver Mike Williams has a fracture in his neck that Tigers coach Dabo Swinney said might keep him out all season.
Swinney said Sunday that an MRI showed a small fracture after the junior slammed into the padded goalpost support. Swinney did not have a timetable for when Williams might return, although he thought the wideout would have to have the injury checked in six weeks.
Williams had 1,030 yards and six touchdowns last season and figured to lead a talented, yet young, group of receivers. Williams was hurt on a 4-yard touchdown catch that opened the No. 12 Clemson’s scoring in a 49-10 victory over Wofford on Saturday.
Swinney said Charone Peake, Travion Thompson and Deon Cain will work into Williams’ spot.
