Updated: no broken bones in leg for Clemson’s Tajh Boyd

Tajh Boyd

Clemson fans were riding a wave of euphoria after defeating three AP top 25 teams over as many weeks. With a No. 8 ranking and a game against 1-4 Boston College, the Tigers were looking good.

That excitement came to a thud, however, in the third quarter of the Tigers’ game against BC, when star quarterback Tajh Boyd left the game in the third quarter after getting hit in the left leg. Boyd attempted to get up from the hit, but was eventually helped off by team trainers. Boyd could not put any pressure on his injured leg.

Sideline reporters have stated that the injury is to Boyd’s upper leg and not his knee. Outside of that, details are scarce. The Associated Press reported after the game that Boyd was walking around the locker room with some ease.

“We’re praying for positive news there,” head coach Dabo Swinney said. An MRI on Boyd’s hip came back negative.

Suffice it to say, though, losing Boyd for any amount of time would be a huge disappointment for a team that finally seemed to be shaking the “Clemson being Clemson” curse. Boyd is considered questionable for the Tigers’ next game against Maryland.

Not that an injury is anyone’s fault, of course, but it always feels like it’s something with the Tigers.

Clemson defeated Boston College 36-14. Freshman Cole Stoudt┬ácame in in as Boyd’s replacement.

    Tajhy is such an awesome kid. Hope he’s alright.

    Without getting specific, he really had a college head coach treat him with a ridiculous amount of immaturity and borderline bigotry while being recruited and Tajh was the bigger man. He just turned the cheek and never bit.

    Great, great kid. Mature beyond his years.
