CLEMSON – With freshman tailback James Davis out with a broken wrist, Reggie Merriweather obviously…
Davis Has Surgery
The rushing total was the most by a Clemson player since Woody Dantzler had 184 yards rushing at NC State on October 13, 2001, four years to the day prior to Davis's performance. His 143 yards were the most by a Clemson running back since Travis Zachery had 151 yards against Maryland in 2000.
Davis's rushing total was the fifth highest in Clemson history for a freshman. He now has 433 yards in 84 attempts this year, 5.15 average. His four touchdowns are tied for the team lead with wide receiver Curtis Baham. "James had an outstanding game on Thursday night," said Head Coach Tommy Bowden. "He was on pace to have a 200-yard game. We will miss him, there is no doubt and are optimistic he will be back in three to four weeks.
"But we have outstanding, experienced running backs in Reggie Merriweather and Kyle Browning. We will have to get a third tailback ready. We will have a personnel meeting over the weekend to determine what we will do in that regard until James returns."
