CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Clemson starting safety Landen Zanders will miss the rest of the season with a shoulder injury suffered in a loss to Georgia last week.

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney says Zanders needs surgery and won’t be able to return until next year.

Swinney says Zanders will use this as a redshirt season and return next fall.

The Tigers will also be without their other injured starting safety Nolan Turner when they face South Carolina State on Saturday.
