The former Clemson star reportedly pulled his hamstring during one of the practice sessions. That’s not to say Boyd isn’t athletic, as the quarterback most recently played for the Montreal Alouettes in the Canadian Football League.
Boyd was the starting quarterback of the Tigers from 2011-2013, compiling a list of Clemson records. In his three season as the team’s starter, Boyd threw for at least 3,800 yards in all three season, racking up 107 passing touchdowns and 26 rushing touchdowns.
Boyd still holds records for the most passing yards and most passing touchdowns in Clemson football history.
Will Boyd’s help this week guide Clemson to a national title? Find out tonight when Alabama and Clemson kickoff tonight at 8:00 p.m. E.T.
