The Clemson Tigers wish they had Kelly Bryant back on their roster. However, that will not happen, as Bryant announced on Wednesday he was transferring from the program.

Trevor Lawrence was named the Tigers starter for this game against the Syracuse Orange. The true freshman left the game on Saturday with an injury.

He left the game in the second quarter after taking a shot to the head. After taking the shot from Evan Foster, he was down for several minutes before going into the injury tent on the sidelines.

School officials also took his helmet away from him. This could mean he suffered a concussion.

Without Lawrence, the team has turned to Chase Brice. Prior to Saturday’s game, he only had eight career passes.

This is the second straight year that Clemson has suffered an injury to their starting quarterback against Syracuse. Last year, Bryant was injured and did not return.

The Tigers lost that game. They are presently losing 16-7 at halftime.

At the beginning of the third quarter, Clemson announced that Lawrence will not return to the game. He went 10 of 15 for 93 yards.

Brice, his replacement, went 0 of 1 for zero yards.

Bryant will use the NCAA’s new rule, established in June, that will players to transfer to another institution after playing in four or fewer games in a season. He will be a graduate transfer at his new school, which has not been announced at this time.
