Clemson opens the year with contests against Wofford, Appalachian State, and at Louisville. Dabo Swinney went into more detail after today's practice.

"Ammon will miss the first three games. He is back on the team, and I know there has been a lot of conversation, but he will definitely be out these first three weeks, and then he will come back and have an open date and get back out and compete. Obviously we will have some performance with Huegel, Spence or whoever ends up being out there, and we will see what happens. That's consequences. He's a senior. Hadn't had any problems with him. He's been a solid guy and citizen since he has been here. Your seniors should be at their best and should know. He has done everything we have asked him to do so now he just has got his team punishment which is three games and then he will back full graces with the Tigers. If he wins the job back good for him. But I hope Greg goes out there and is 10-10 in the first three games so we will see what happens."

Greg Huegel, who has reportedly been impressive in camp thus far, will open the season as the starter. Lakip was 21-for-28 on kicks and 43-for-44 on extra points last season.
