UPDATE: Clemson has announced that Boyd's injury is a hip injury, not a leg injury.
Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd suffered a strained hip in Saturday’s 36-14 victory over Boston College. Boyd had X-rays at Memorial Stadium, then had an MRI at Oconee Hospital in Seneca on Saturday night. The X-rays and MRI were negative. His status for next Saturday’s game against Maryland in College Park would be termed questionable at this point. An update of Boyd’s status will be given this coming week.Clemson starting quarterback Tajh Boyd has left Saturday's game against Boston College with an apparent left leg injury. Boyd was hit by Boston College defensive end Max Holloway as he completed a pass to Dwayne Allen inside the Eagles' 10 yard line. Boyd's leg appeared to buckle underneath him as he was brought to the ground, and the trainers were tending to his knee after he was helped off the sideline.
Boyd was carted to the locker room for X-rays, and his return to the game is not expected. He has been replaced by freshman Cole Stoudt. You can follow the rest of the game here.
