Clemson starting quarterback Kelly Bryant left for part of the Tigers' blowout win over Georgia Southern on Saturday. Dabo Swinney updated the status of his starting quarterback after the win.

Bryant, the senior starter, went to the locker room in the first half after taking a tough blow with about a minute left.

Clemson's quarterback later returned to the game and appeared to be fine.

Swinney updated his status during an interview with ESPN after the game.

From TigerNet:

During Dabo Swinney's interview with ESPN, he said that he didn't know the injury status of Bryant but he told Swinney that he was breathing heavy. In the second quarter during a designed run, he had an awkward collision where he landed on the football and his helmet hit the ground hard. He was out for the rest of the game as Trevor Lawrence and Chase Brice finished up the contest.

Swinney said during his postgame press conference that Bryant is doing "good." His heart was racing and they checked it out with an EKG machine and he should be fine.

Bryant completed 7 of 10 passes for 68 yards and 1 touchdown in the win. He rushed for 27 yards on 6 carries.

Clemson is set to play at Georgia Tech on Saturday.
