Clemson football practice brief

CLEMSON, S.C.(CLEMSON) --"This was the fifth day in a row of hitting and you could tell that," said head Coach Dabo Swinney after a two and a half hour workout on Friday morning. {}The Tigers will hold their first stadium scrimmage on Saturday. {}It will be closed to the public.

"We pushed through it and got done what we needed to get done. {}It was sloppy and not consistent, but it was a morning practice after four straight late afternoons. {}

"We knew it would be a tough day, I told them it would be a tough day before we started and it was a tough day. {}We started with the "Paw Drill" and went from there. {}There was good competition on both sides of the ball, which was good to see."'

It was a frustrating day for the offense much of the day, but near the end Tajh Boyd hit Charone Peake for a 97 yard touchdown on a perfectly thrown long pass.

Cornerback Darius Robinson missed practice as he recovers from a concussion. {}It is not known how long he will be out. Martavis Bryant was limited, but much improved on Friday after missing some time with a groin injury. Receivers Mike Williams and Adam Humphries were both back at practice after missing time due to injury. Starting offensive guard David Beasley missed the morning practice with a lower abdominal strain.
