Clemson TE Leggett out for Georgia Tech

Clemson backup tight end Jordan Leggett will miss the

eighth-ranked Tigers game with Georgia Tech on Thursday night for

violating team rules.

Tigers coach Dabo Swinney announced the suspension in a

statement about two hours before kickoff with the Yellow Jackets at

Death Valley.

Swinney did not detail the reason for Leggett’s absence, only

that it was a one-game penalty.

Leggett is a 6-foot-5, 240 pound freshman from Navarre, Fla. He

has played in seven games this season with 10 catches for 89 yards.

Two of his grabs have been for touchdowns.
