Clemson coach Dabo Swinney updates quarterback Cade Klubnik’s injury status

Quarterback Cade Klubnik got a huge win Saturday.

But it didn’t come without some concern for his injury status heading into the Tigers’ 31-23 upset win over No. 12 Notre Dame on Saturday at Memorial Stadium.

Swinney said postgame that Klubnik didn’t practice Monday or Tuesday and didn’t get any competitive reps until Wednesday because of an undisclosed injury. Klubnik played the entire game with a heavily wrapped right leg and ankle and was reportedly wearing a walking boot earlier in the week.

Klubnik didn’t miss a snap against the Fighting Irish, though.

“This kid’s tough,” Swinney said. “He’s got some moxie.”

Klubnik said postgame his foot feels “great,” indicating he should be good to go moving forward as the Tigers (5-4, 2-4 ACC) close the regular season against Georgia Tech, UNC and South Carolina.

“My foot feels great,” Klubnik said. “I felt 100% today. … Just kinda handled it, what the coaches told me to to do and what the trainers told me to do, but I feel great.”
