Illness to keep Sammy Watkins out of Clemson’s game vs. BC

After sitting out the first two games of the season due to a suspension, Sammy Watkins was rounding into the game shape he displayed during an All-American season as a true freshman last season.

Unfortunately, that rounding will go on a sabbatical for the upcoming weekend.

The Tigers announced Thursday that the wide receiver will not travel with the team for their game against Boston College.  The release announcing the development stated that Watkins is suffering from an abdominal virus.

“Sammy has been practicing, but on Tuesday and Wednesday took himself out late in the practice because he was not feeling well,” said head coach Dabo Swinney. “Today he was worse and after going to the doctor it was determined that he needed to stay here this weekend.”

In his two games this season, Watkins has caught 10 passes, although he’s totaled just 76 yards and scored no touchdowns.  He did, though, throw a touchdown pass in the Florida State loss this past Saturday.

Additionally, backup guard Kalon Davis will not play against the Eagles due to a hamstring injury suffered during Thursday’s practice.

    @FloridaCock, you would know since you had 4 years of watching Stephen “Jerry” Garcia! How many meetings did he show up drunk to?

    @mauldawg, 1) Sammy isn’t a thug. 2) Please tell me who your team is and I will gladly point out someone that has done the same thing. 3) Stop being a hypocrite, I know you drank or smoked something you weren’t supposed to in college. That’s if you went to college.

    Nothing a little “Medical” Marry Jane wont fix…Ole’ Lead Foot “I’m late to my radio interview at the Bi-lo” Swinney should speed on out to the hood and get him some.

    @planck16 to your First part that was @FloridaCock, he showed up drunk and got in trouble for drinking, something legal at 21.

    And you second part @mauldawg, looks like a thug, talks like a thug, and acts like a thug… Must be a thug. Also not every team has a problem with students like that, most schools expel students for drugs, I know mine does. Lastly just because you and your friends did something in college that is immoral doesn’t mean everyone has, I just turned 21 and am in college and have never drank underage and never smoked anything I wasn’t supposed to or anything at all, I also haven’t taken other people’s prescription drugs like Sammy Dropkins therefore mauldawg could easily have gone his life without breaking the law too.

    @planck16
    Actually he never showed up drunk, just had beer on his breath and he WAS over 21, also got in trouble with a girl in his room after curfew. BAD boy, but not a druggie law breaker, like Sammy

    Garcia got arrested for keying a visiting professor’s car so there goes any argument in the whose worse debate.

  8. gogreengiants says: Sep 28, 2012 7:24 PM

    @Igottz5onit exactly because drugs are worse than keying someone’s car, thank you for clarifying for us

  9. igottz5onit says: Sep 28, 2012 8:05 PM

    Is that sarcasm or just stupidity?

  10. classyjacklambert says: Sep 29, 2012 2:21 PM

    Yeah greengiant go ask 10 people if they would rather you smoke a joint or key your car and if one says key their car it’s probably not their. car or they are as dumb as you are.

  11. classyjacklambert says: Sep 29, 2012 2:23 PM

    Key their car…goddamn autocorrect.

  12. gogreengiants says: Sep 29, 2012 3:16 PM

    @classyjacklambert ok well you go smoke a joint and take someone’s prescription medicine in front of a cop and get your ignorant buddy igottz5onit to key a car in front of the same cop. Tell me who either gets more jail time or a higher ticket, that will be the druggy, neither are good things but being a druggy is definitely worse than keying a car.

    Plus your statement is redundant, why would I ask them to key my car and then they answer that they would want to key their own car? Yes that would make them pretty stupid.

  13. gogreengiants says: Sep 29, 2012 3:21 PM

    @classyjacklambert Your asking 10 people would make more sense if I ask them if they would rather smoke a joint or they key a car. Or asking 10 people if they think it is worse for a person to smoke a joint or key a car. Unfortunately you are too stupid to get a straight comparison to the events.

  14. igottz5onit says: Sep 29, 2012 4:59 PM

    In what world do you live in greengiant that smoking a joint by yourself is worse than messing up someone else’s property? That logic is certainly not supply by the law or any major theological branch. Therefore you just come off as an ignorant teenager trying to justify your own teams actions by spouting nonsense.

  15. gogreengiants says: Sep 29, 2012 5:42 PM

    @igottz5onit well I live on Earth, just in case you are as ignorant as you seem to be to have to ask that stupid question. But he also had another person’s prescription drugs so yes I believe that is bad. But police do too as I said earlier which is why having a controlled substance illegally and having marijuana is worse than keying a car based on the charges for that being more expensive and more jail time then cleaning a car. Also if you read the comments on here you would know that I am not a teenager and you just keep making yourself look ignorant by ignoring parts of my previous comments but keep it up kiddo you are doing well. Lastly I don’t think saying that doing drugs are worse than keying a car is at all “trying to justify your own teams actions by spouting nonsense” since neither of these players are on my team and you are the one “spouting nonsense” by not knowing what you are talking about when you tell us what you “think.”

  16. igottz5onit says: Sep 29, 2012 6:09 PM

    I’m not telling you what to think I am just telling you try to think. Because it seems like that is a problem for you. First of all you said earlier that most colleges expel people that are caught with drugs. 100% bullshit. There usually is some disciplinary action unless they are a repeat offender. And that is something called a fact. Also colleges do often expel students that are caught vandalizing school property or professors cars which depending on the extent could be considered felony destruction of property. So boom read a book or do they not have those at whatever yokels college you claim to attend tweener wannabe

  17. gogreengiants says: Sep 29, 2012 6:54 PM

    I never said that you are telling me what to think, you are telling me to try to think and I am thinking about logic, that if a law carries a more severe penalty that makes it worse to break that law, and that is a fact. Show me statistics that prove that most colleges don’t expel people that are caught with drugs since that is “100% bullshit,” because I do not believe you. Plus I do read books and apparently you do not because I do know that a fine for drugs and jail time for drugs are more than for keying a car. Certain drug convictions are also a felony, so saying that it is possible that vandalism can be a felony is redundant. Lastly how exactly am I a “tweener wannabe?” If being logical and obviously smarter than you makes me one, then I can see why you would call me that.
