CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Initially feared to be out for four-to five weeks, Dabo Swinney confirmed Wednesday evening that sophomore receiver E.J. Williams has “looked great” in the past two practices and will forge on with his injured thumb and continue to play in games, instead of having surgery.

Williams is a 6-foot-3, 195-pound wideout from Phenix City, Alabama who had one catch in the third-ranked Tigers’ 10-3 loss to No. 5 Georgia on Saturday night. Williams had 24 catches for 306 yards and two touchdowns as a freshman in 2020.
