Clemson coach Dabo Swinney does not foresee any reason that Tajh Boyd will miss time due to a collarbone injury suffered against Georgia Tech last Thursday night. During Monday's teleconference Swinney said that Boyd is "fine" and will practice fully this week in preparation for the Tigers' final home game against Citadel.

"He could've come back in the game against Georgia Tech," Swinney said.

Boyd was taken to the locker room for X-rays after taking a hit in the third quarter. The senior quarterback returned to the sideline and was even seen throwing a football, but with the game in hand the Tigers coaching staff opted to keep backup Cole Stoudt in the game.

If Florida State finishes the season undefated and makes the BCS title game, Clemson is the likely replacement pick to represent the ACC in the Orange Bowl. But Clemson, in a way, does control its own BCS destiny as a win at South Carolina would make the Tigers an attractive candidate for any at-large bid.
