Clemson’s Amari Rodgers suffers leg injury at Monday’s practice; Update: torn ACL

According to multiple reports, Clemson wide receiver Amari Rodgers suffered a leg injury during Monday’s practice. As Tiger Net notes, there’s some concern that the injury relates to the receiver’s ACL. He was carted off the field.

After two seasons in orange, Rodgers has proven himself to be a valuable playmaker. During the 2018 title season, Rodgers caught 55 passes (second most on the team) for 575 yards and four touchdowns. More on an underneath route-runner (10.5 yards per catch) — compared to Tee Higgins and Justyn Ross — Rodgers was certainly in line for some of Hunter Renfrow’s lost production.

Rodgers enjoyed a career day during Clemson’s beatdown of Florida State last October, too. That Saturday afternoon, Rodgers hauled in six passes for 156 yards and two touchdowns.

A season ago, Rodgers was also Clemson’s leading punt returner: 39 returns for 299 yards and a touchdown.

 

Update: Amari Rodgers, torn ACL
