Andre Ellington injured
By Heather Dinich
Clemson running back Andre Ellington will miss at least the next two games with a toe injury he suffered in a 16-10 loss at Boston College on Saturday. Ellington leads the Tigers with 686 rushing yards and leads the ACC in all-purpose yards.
This is obviously a huge loss for a team that's already down. Clemson's offense has struggled this season with Ellington, and without him, the Tigers' bowl chances take an even bigger hit.
Clemson needs two more wins to become bowl eligible, and right now, I don't see it, especially without Ellington. The Tigers still have to play NC State, at Florida State, at Wake Forest and a ranked rival in South Carolina. A 1-3 finish isn't a stretch.
