CLEMSON (AP) — Clemson quarterback Cole Stoudt says he doesn’t expect to miss practice time with a knee he bruised in a scrimmage last week.

Stoudt received treatment on his knee after the Tigers held a scrimmage last Saturday. He returned to action Monday and said he didn’t miss a snap during the session.

Stoudt is a senior who won Clemson’s starting job in the spring after the spending the previous three seasons as backup to record-setting quarterback Tajh Boyd.

Stoudt is scheduled to start the Tigers’ season opener at Georgia on Aug. 30th, although both coach Dabo Swinney and offensive coordinator Chad Morris have said that highly regarded freshman Deshaun Watson will see playing time against the Bulldogs.

Stoudt is the son of former NFL passer Cliff Stoudt.
