Clemson held its first fall camp Saturday morning at Memorial Stadium.
Next, head coach Dabo Swinney provided an update on the health of his team.
Junior wideout Beaux Collins has been sidelined in recent days with a shoulder injury, but Swinney said he will be out next week and expects to be back “soon.” The Tigers will get it back at some point in the final two weeks before the tournament opener in Atlanta against Georgia Tech.
“He has full range of motion with his shoulder, but he can’t make contact at this point,” Swinney said.
Junior receiver EJ Williams, who has missed several practices in recent days because of a hematoma, is expected back after Monday.

Redshirt freshman Troy Stellato suffered a torn ACL in practice on Friday and will miss the rest of the season.
“The sad part is the story since he’s been here,” Sweeney said. “Since he came here, he really hasn’t been there. It’s another failure for him. It’s frustrating but I try to cheer him up. Four years left.”
Forward Mitchell Mays has been in concussion protocol all week but is expected to return Monday.
Swinney added that one player sustained a sprained ankle during the game, but he did not confirm the extent with the training staff. Defensive end Xavier Thomas was seen in the media as he took off his shoes and left the stadium in the front seat of his cart, but Swinney did not confirm that it was Thomas who suffered the injury.
