Clemson wide receiver Charone Peake suffered a torn ACL and is out for the season.
Clemson has lost one of its top offensive players for the season due to an injury.
Former Dorman High wide receiver Charone Peake, the Tigers second leading receiver this season, suffered a torn ACL during Tuesday afternoon's practice, according to Clemson Sports Information Director Tim Bourret. Peake's injury happened during a non-contact drill and a MRI performed on Wednesday revealed its severity.
"This is a big loss, Charone was having a great year and was going to have a great year," said Head Coach Dabo Swinney. "We are thin at receiver with just six scholarship players now. We like to carry 10 at that position. We have good players, but we don't have a lot of bodies."
Peake had eight catches for 84 yards and a touchdown through the third-ranked Tigers first two games of the season. He played in all 13 games last season for Clemson.
Swinney said that Adam Humphries, also from Dorman High, would move into Peake's starting role.
