CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Clemson coach Dabo Swinney says injured quarterback Trevor Lawrence will play against Wake Forest.

Lawrence missed the second half of fourth-ranked Clemson’s 27-23 win over Syracuse last week after taking a hard hit right before halftime.

At first Swinney said Lawrence had concussion-like symptoms. On Monday, coaches said Lawrence’s injury was more of a neck strain.

Lawrence took part in all of Clemson’s practice Monday. Swinney says the 6-foot-6 freshman looks and feels great and that is a “big blessing” for the Tigers (5-0, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference).

Swinney also said Clemson receiver Hunter Renfrow is splitting time at quarterback and could come in third if something happens to Lawrence and backup Chase Brice.
