Dabo Swinney and the Clemson football program have dealt with a variety of injuries this spring,
with cornerback Jeadyn Lukus’ shoulder injury being one we’ve known about for a while.
Though the Tigers won’t shut down Lukus immediately,
Swinney announced late last season that surgery is once again required for the young cornerback.
Things could have been handled by now, it seems, but Lukus is an athlete who wants to compete so they have delayed things with surgery set to come later in the spring.
“He wants to go compete,” Swinney explained. “We could’ve gone ahead and cleaned him up, but we wanted to wait and let him get the first half of spring so he could really get out there and compete.
That way, we can get him back and ready to go really for all of our summer training,” Swinney said.
A former five-star recruit, Lukus played in 11 games last season as a true freshman. This will be the second shoulder surgery Lukus has had in his short career with the Tigers.
