One of the biggest question marks heading into the National Championship between No. 1 Clemson and No. 2 Alabama is the status of All-American defensive end Shaq Lawson for the Tigers. Lawson of course missed much of the semifinal Orange Bowl victory over Oklahoma after sustaining an injury to his knee.
Well Clemson fans got a ray of hope Tuesday, as Lawson was seen participating in practice, albeit with a brace on his inured knee.
