Clemson’s coach: Injured RB Wayne Gallman will play Saturday
CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Clemson coach Dabo Swinney says Wayne Gallman practiced with the team Monday and will play against No. 12 Florida State on Saturday night.
Gallman was knocked out of the third-ranked Tigers (7-0, 4-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) game versus North Carolina State on Oct. 15 after a hard hit that appeared to be helmet-to-helmet contact. No penalty was called on the play but the running back believes it was a “dirty” hit and wanted teammates to retaliate during the game. He went through the concussion protocol during Clemson’s bye week.
Swinney said Tuesday Gallman will practice in full pads and be ready for the Seminoles (5-2, 2-2).
Gallman set Clemson’s single-season rushing record with 1,527 yards last season. He leads the team with 489 yards and five TDs this year.
