At the start of the 19th-ranked Tigers bye week, Watson was listed as ''out'' for Thursday night's contest against the Demon Deacons with a broken bone in his throwing hand. The school's updated injury list was released Monday.
Clemson (6-2, 5-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) is seeking its sixth straight victory.
Offensive coordinator Chad Morris said last week Watson had begun throwing a football at workouts.
Coach Dabo Swinney said Watson was making good progress recovering from his injury, which came early in a 23-17 victory over Louisville. Swinney said last week while there was a chance Watson could play at Wake Forest, it was more likely he'd return against Georgia Tech on Nov. 15.
