Clemson Tigers Roster Update: Notes on the Full Travel List for Opener Against Georgia Tech

Clemson announced its 80-man travel roster for tonight’s season opener against Georgia Tech at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

Here are a few key notes about the No. 4 Tigers’ personnel heading into the 8 pm contest:

  • Dabo Swinney announced Wednesday that defensive end Xavier Thomas (foot) and receiver Adam Randall (ACL rehab) were the only two injury-related players out.
  • Thomas suffered his injury during the first scrimage of fall camp but is expected back this month.
  • Randall blew out his knee in spring practice but has advanced quickly and could be on the field in September, but no specific timetable has been announced.
  • Receiver Beaux Collins suffered a shoulder injury in August and missed a couple of weeks of practice but, he’s available to play against the Yellow Jackets.
  • EJ Williams, who also sat out of several fall camp practices with a back bruise, should play tonight.
  • Defensive tackle Tré Williams is healthy and expected to be in the rotation at a deep position tonight. He suffered a weight-room injury in early August that required minor surgery.
  • Clemson carried two freshmen cornerbacks to Atlanta: Toriano Pride Jr. and Jeadyn Lukus.
  • Freshman safety Sherrod Covil made the trip and should see his first action of the season.
  • Freshman WR Antonio Williams is suiting up and will likely be in the rotation in the slot behind starter Brannon Spector.
  • Clemson carried all five quarterbacks and five running backs, including freshman Keith Adams Jr., to Atlanta.
