Reports: Clemson CB Mackensie Alexander Dealing With Hamstring Issue

When Clemson takes on Alabama tonight, the Tigers might be without the services of one of their top defensive players. 

Multiple reports are indicatingthat Clemson's star cornerback Mackensie Alexander is battling a hamstring issue. ESPN's Joe Schad said the Tigers have confirmed Alexander's hamstring is bothering him, and declared him a "game-time decision."

Clemson likely would have relied on a healthy Alexander to match up with Alabama's main deep threat, freshman speedster Calvin Ridley. Now, with the vaunted cover corner not at 100 percent, it could alter the Tigers' game plan.
