COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson believes he won't miss a beat despite sitting out all spring after knee ligament surgery. And the Tigers most dynamic player insists he'll return at full speed once he's cleared to cut loose this summer.
The slender signal-caller said he's on track for a full recovery heading into his sophomore year after an offseason of injuries and frustrations. Watson suffered injuries to his collarbone, a finger on his throwing hand and the ACL in his left knee during a late November practice.
Despite the knee injury, the 6-foot-2, 205-pound Watson helped the Tigers end their five-game losing streak against South Carolina with a 35-17 victory. Watson had surgery two weeks later.
