An injury that hampered Bashaud Breeland throughout the latter portion of 2012 has officially ended the Clemson cornerback’s season, the school announced.
Head coach Dabo Swinney confirmed Wednesday that Breeland will not play in the Chick-fil-A Bowl against LSU due to a groin injury. The redshirt sophomore will undergo surgery later in the day today to repair the damage.
“He had practiced some this month with the hope of getting him ready to play against LSU, but it is apparent he will not be well enough to play in the Chick-fil-A Bowl,” said Swinney.
Breeland originally suffered the injury in mid-October against Virginia Tech and played in just two of the Tigers’ five subsequent games. Prior to the injury, he started five of seven games.
