Clemson QB Deshaun Watson will be ready to play as backup
"He'll be dressed and ready if needed,” Swinney said. “He's continued to prepare the right way. He looks good."
The freshman quarterback was named the starter after coming on in relief of senior Cole Stoudt in Week 3 against Florida State. He has 1,176 yards with 12 touchdowns and two interceptions in six games. Stoudt has resumed the starting position following Watson's injury and has 494 yards for one touchdown and two interceptions in the last two games.
Clemson is 6-2 overall and 5-1 in the ACC. They travel to Wake Forest (2-6) on Saturday.
