Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney said Monday afternoon that rising junior wide receiver Justyn Ross will miss the upcoming season due to pending surgery.
Ross will have surgery for a congenital fusion in his back and spine Friday in Pittsburgh.
Swinney said in a conference call with the media that doctors found it after an X-ray in the spring.
Ross sat out a practice after taking a hard hit.
He is seeing a specialist in Pittsburgh who works with the Steelers, according to Swinney.
Ross had 66 receptions for 865 yards and eight touchdowns in 2019.
