Deshaun Watson day-to-day with knee sprain

Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson has a sprained LCL and a bone bruise, the school announced Sunday, but the freshman quarterback could return to action for the season finale against South Carolina in two weeks.

Watson, who emerged as the Tigers' starting quarterback after nearly leading them to a win over then-top-ranked Florida State in September, suffered the knee injury in the first quarter of Saturday's loss to Georgia Tech. The injury looked severe in the immediate aftermath, but an MRI on Sunday revealed only a minor sprain.

Offensive guard David Beasley, who also suffered a knee injury against Georgia Tech, was diagnosed with Patellar tendon inflammation and may also return shortly.

"We received some great news," coach Dabo Swinney said. "Both players are not seriously injured, something we feared Saturday. They are listed as day-to-day, and their status will be evaluated later this week."
