Hope you get back quickly Skalski but only if it’s healthy for you to.

we seem to have more guys banged up for longer periods than any time I recall. Maybe due to the disrupted off season. Other teams also seem to be having this too

And to think some conferences opted for spring ball, followed up by fall ball. Watch those players next year from those conferences and I bet injuries will be through the roof.

Yep, the lack of off season training could very well be the reason for these nagging injuries. Losing Skalski is a pretty significant loss from the LB core with his experience and leadership. But, a scope has a pretty quick recovery time in most instances, but still, this means that he will be out for the ND game, bummer!!!

I believe that FM is the expert in 'scoping' the groin area...

Good question. To be honest this sounds like an injury that will keep Skalski less than 100% until full rest after the season. We need someone else to step up big from here on out.

Huge loss for us. We'll definitely miss him. Hope his scope goes well and he is back very soon.

but domers don't get your hopes up. MIKE JONES SPECTOR SIMPSON, VENABLES and BENTLEY

will do just fine. you're getting your worse home loss ever, Notre Dame. I'm Catholic and i'm sorry for ya but this is football.

Chip Kelly, start putting in resumes. Not gonna be pretty

Yeah but Mike Jones hurt his hammie on the interception return. I look for Bentley to get some time crushing skulls and being the brick wall Skalski was.

Makes you wonder if it’s not similar to the groin injury Nick Bosa has his last year at OSU. He missed quite a few games as I recall and eventually declared.

It's time for Jake V. to step up and be a leader. He played well last week. I hope he can step it up another notch or 2 when we play ND.

The only thing I can think of would be a torsion-
which he would not care about football in the least -if that was the problem.
Just my two cents worth.

So for this week I guess it’s Spector, Simpson, Venables. Mcguire probably gets more snaps as a backup.

Otherwise, Skalski... I am praying for a speedy recovery. You are awesome!

Sorry to hear about James Skalski, Just one reason your backups always have to be ready! I'm sure Jake will do a great job in his absence. Good Luck Jake ,Go Tigers!

Get well soon James!

I think 15 will step in and do a fine job for us! He'll have all the support he needs including Skalski on the sideline giving him advice. He's just inexperienced; but has played some meaningful snaps just not a ton like Skalski. It's going to hurt losing Skalski for certain; but I am thinking it will be minimal - especially now that the team knows for certain he will be out for a while.

That stinks! We definitely need Tyler Davis healthy to plug up the defense of line then

Re: TNET: Clemson LB out for upcoming games

I guess we will just have to score more points if needed. Our offense can do it.


Tough to deal with but we'll be OK


Posted: Oct 27, 2020, 2:35 PM
 

We will be fine this weekend against BC. They aren't very good.

If Tyler and Mike Jones are both fully healthy against ND, we will handle them also. The team should be laser-focused and ready to take care of business.


Re: Tough to deal with but we'll be OK


Posted: Oct 27, 2020, 3:01 PM
 

Syracuse wasn't very good either, but they played hard and so will BC. It's fine for us fans to overlook them, but I know our coaches won't.


I don;t expect Tyler back for a while. When they get real


Posted: Oct 27, 2020, 7:19 PM
 

quiet and vague, I don't look for them to come back for a long time.


I could see this coming the other day when


Posted: Oct 27, 2020, 4:16 PM
 

Dabo said groin. I just dont understand whr Dabo would say he should be back next week, when clearly not the case. And like I said Tyler Davis will drag on for the rest of the season also. We will be lucky if not.
When we get injuries we get em big.
The heart of the defense right there with both of them.

Everybody loves the QB, but Skalski has been my favorite player for a while. I've liked to watch him even when he was a young back up. The guy just always had a nose for the football.
But, again, Clemson just develops their players about as well as anyone in the country which should be a strong recruiting tool.

I'm also super impressed with the young Venables. I was hesitant at first thinking he was just a spoiled coaches kid that got a scholarship because of his daddy. But, no, both of them are really good particularly Jake at the moment. Tyler will come along and be a coach back there.

Also, I have seen some negative talk about Nolan Turner. Nope, the guy may be white, but I bet he turns in a super 40 at either the combine or at pro day and is picked up by some NFL team and plays in that league a while. I predict it. The guy can ball and is tied with 13 others for the most interceptions with 3.

Skalski is my favorite, but with the talent that Clemson has now across the board, we will keep going strong. Tyler Davis and Jordan Williams being out may suck, but with Pinckney and Bresee around I am not too worried about it. Kendrick being out hurts a little, but I have faith in the current CBs.
Mostly, it sucks for Skalski and Davis and the rest of the injured players. Davis was a beast last year as a freshman and saved the interior of the line.

Simpson has looked really good. Different approach than Skalski - more speed and less bruising - but coach V knows how to play to their strengths. I wouldn’t be surprised for the next two weeks to be his coming out party! GO TIGERS!!!


That hurts.


Posted: Oct 27, 2020, 6:52 PM
 

A LOT.


Hes not Skalski, but I thought Venables did ok


Posted: Oct 27, 2020, 6:58 PM
 

at MLB. I was pleased with his performance, no missed tackles, no arm tackles, always in the mix. Well be alright for a few weeks.


Sounds like he may not be back at all.***
