Tigers say Adrian Baker out at least for spring

Clemson cornerback Adrian Baker has a torn ACL, putting his 2016 season in jeopardy.

Tigers coach Dabo Swinney announced the injury Wednesday, declaring Baker out for the rest of spring.

With Baker out, depth in the secondary is further depleted after the Tigers lost three starters to the NFL draft, including cornerback Mackensie Alexander.

Cornerback Cordrea Tankersley is the lone starter who is back. Baker was challenging Mark Fields to take the spot Alexander left behind.
