Watson Available Again For Clemson

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Injured quarterback Deshaun Watson is healthy enough to return for No. 19 Clemson, although Tigers coach Dabo Swinney says he might not use the freshman against Wake Forest on Thursday night. Watson has missed the past two games for Clemson (6-2, 5-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) with a broken bone in his right, throwing hand. Swinney said Tuesday that Watson’s condition improved greatly during the team’s bye week, that he was throwing the ball strongly and was ready to play should the Tigers need him against the Demon Deacons (2-6, 0-4). Watson is expected to start Nov. 15 when Clemson (No. 21 College Football Playoff) plays at Georgia Tech. Senior Cole Stoudt will start his third consecutive game after leading the Tigers to wins over Louisville, Boston College and Syracuse.
