Son of Jets coach hurt at Clemson practice

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) Clemson receiver Seth Ryan, the son of New York Jets coach Rex Ryan, broke his collarbone at practice Monday.

The school said Ryan was making a diving coach in the end zone when he got hurt. Ryan is a redshirt freshman who sat out last season, his first since enrolling at Clemson.

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said Ryan was playing well, but will be out for a while with the injury. Swinney said he expected the 5-foot-11, 160-pound Ryan to be a good player for the Tigers down the road.

The Jets coach has spent plenty of time at Clemson with his son. He attended the Tigers' 38-35 victory over Georgia last season at Death Valley. He has been a regular at Clemson's pro prospect days in recent seasons.
