Kelly Bryant, Clemson's starting quarterback, had to leave this afternoon's game against Georgia Southern with an apparent injury. Here is the latest on the status of the Tigers' quarterback.

Bryant, a senior, left this afternoon's game against Georgia Southern with apparent upper-body/head injury. The dual-threat quarterback suffered a hard fall and appeared shaken up coming off the field.

Clemson replaced Bryant with true freshman Trevor Lawrence. He threw a touchdown pass shortly after that.

"Kelly Bryant takes a hard hit and is being looked at on the sideline. Lawrence back in the game," Matt Connolly tweeted.

Lawrence threw a laser for that touchdown pass, too.

There have been questions about Clemson's quarterback position so far this season. Some fans have been calling for Lawrence, a five-star recruit with an NFL arm.

Bryant has played well so far this season, though. He looked especially good in the win over Texas A&M last weekend.

"There were always questions brought up to me about my game," Bryant said about the QB competition. "People saying I can't do this and I can't do that. I just stayed the course and continued to grind."

Update: Bryant returned to the Clemson-Georgia Southern game with a couple of minutes left in the second quarter.

Stay tuned for more updates.
