One day after Clemson improved to 3-0 with a home win over Virginia, head coach Dabo Swinney announced some positive news: star receiver Justyn Ross has been cleared to lift weights again.
While Ross is out for all of 2020, signs are pointing in the right direction for his future. Ross wants to continue playing when he’s cleared; more will be determined after another check up in December, according to Grace Raynor of The Athletic.
