Clemson RB Tyshon Dye (Achilles) out for spring practice
Clemson announced that redshirt freshman Tyshon Dye suffered a torn Achilles tendon on Friday and will miss all of spring practice.
Per a school release, Tigers coach Dabo Swinney expects Dye, a four-star member of the 2013 recruiting class, to be healthy for the fall season. This is the second injury-related setback for Dye since his arrival on campus. The Elberton, Ga., native already suffered a back injury that resulted in him redshirting the 2013 season.
Clemson's offense will be undergoing significant change this offseason as the coaching staff looks to replace star quarterback Tajh Boyd, wide receivers Sammy Watkins and Martavis Bryant along with 1,000-yard rusher Roderick McDowell.
Dye's absence this spring leaves D.J. Howard and Zac Brooks as the running backs likely competing for the first string snaps. Both players appeared in at least 10 games last season, but neither totaled more than 250 yards rushing.
