Publish date:

Clemson Tigers receiver DeAndre Hopkins has been injured in a car accident and may miss the Orange Bowl on Jan. 2 against West Virginia, according to CollegeFootballTalk.

“First of all, we are relieved that DeAndre is going to be all right,” Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney said in a statement. “He is lucky. We are told he does not have any serious injuries and we hope to have him join us soon. Obviously, DeAndre is one of the main parts of our offense and this would be a big loss if he is not able to play.

Hopkins reportedly suffered a mild concussion in the accident, and did not accompany the team to Miami this morning. According to CollegeFootballTalk, he was on his way to meet the team for their flight when the accident occurred.
