It has been a little more than five months since Clemson wide receiver Amari Rodgers tore his ACL in practice. He appears to be getting closer to making a stunning return to the field.

All of the updates on Rodgers have been positive. He even dressed in full pads and warmed up before the Tigers' season-opening win over Georgia Tech on Thursday.

Incredibly, Dabo Swinney isn't ruling out Rodgers seeing action as soon as this Saturday against Texas A&M.

Swinney said the junior slot man is "in a really good place" at this point.

Rodgers hauled in 55 passes for 575 yards and four touchdowns for the Tigers last season. He caught six passes in the College Football Semifinal win over Notre Dame and had his biggest performance in a 59-10 win over Florida State.

Against the Seminoles, Rodgers recorded six receptions for 156 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

Top-ranked Clemson and No. 12 Texas A&M will meet Saturday afternoon in Death Valley. Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. ET on ABC.
