Clemson Football: Dabo Swinney Says QB Deshaun Watson Is Fully Cleared To Practice

Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson, who suffered a torn ACL late in the 2014 season, has been "full go" and is fully cleared to practice according to head coach Dabo Swinney.

Swinney briefed reporters on Watson's progress during the Clemson media golf outing Wednesday night.

"He's been full go since May," Swinney said about Watson. "He's done everything. He really did a lot in the spring. We're as confident as you can possibly be in a guy. He's done everything and not missed anything. He's been at all of the workouts and skills and drills. He's an above and beyond guy, whatever you tell him he needs to do, he WILL do above and beyond what he needs to do and go above that. He looks great, great summer and excited to get back there. When we start in a couple of weeks, he'll be leading the charge with no restrictions and he has been doing that and has not missed anything."

Watson was fantastic as a freshman last fall, and Clemson's ACC title hopes rest largely on his promising right arm and nimble legs. Having him healthy is a huge piece of good news heading into fall camp.
