Clemson QB Kelly Bryant Out With Apparent Ankle Injury

Clemson is up 21-0 midway through the third quarter against Wake Forest, but just suffered a potentially big injury.

After leading Clemson on a touchdown drive, quarterback Kelly Bryant, who has impressed as the successor to superstar Deshaun Watson, limped off the field and went to the medical tent.

He reportedly suffered an ankle injury, and has been replaced by Zerrick Cooper at quarterback for the Tigers.

From CollegeFootballTalk's Byran Fischer:

Bryant was 21-for-29 for 200 yards, a touchdown, and an interception, and also ran 12 times for 39 yards before leaving the game. Cooper is 2-for-5 for 16 yards thus far.

We'll update as more comes out about Bryant's injury, but his return to the game seems questionable right now.
