Clemson QB Kelly Bryant Is Dealing With A Hamstring Injury

The Tigers quarterback might not play in the spring game.

Clemson's quarterback competition is ongoing and a decent part of the competition will take place this Saturday, during the Tigers' spring game.

One of the quarterbacks competing for the starting job might not be available, though.

Kelly Bryant, whom Dabo Swinney named the favorite for the battle heading into the spring, has suffered a hamstring injury and is questionable for Saturday.

From the Independent Mail:

Bryant, the leader in the clubhouse to start at quarterback for the Tigers, suffered the injury during a running play in practice.

If Bryant is able to play Saturday, he will be the starting quarterback for the Orange team. Tucker Israel will also play quarterback for the Orange team, while Hunter Johnson and Zerrick Cooper will quarterback the White team. If Bryant is unable to play, however, Johnson would play for the Orange team while Israel would see playing time for both teams.

"(The trainers) didn’t think it was bad," Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said of Bryant’s hamstring injury. "He practiced today, so hopefully he’ll be able to play."

Clemson's spring game is set to kick off at 2:30 p.m. E.T. on Saturday. There will be a national championship ceremony at halftime.
