Benched Clemson QB Kelly Bryant misses second-straight practice

With Trevor Lawrence being named Clemson’s starting quarterback for Saturday’s game against Syracuse, Kelly Bryant has been a no-show at practice this week.

Per Grace Raynor of the Post and Courier, Bryant missed practice on Monday and Tuesday after head coach Dabo Swinney made the change.

Raynor also noted Swinney gave Bryant the day off Monday “to process the news and have an afternoon to himself.”

Per NBC Sports’ Kevin McGuire, Swinney noted after making the change he intends to keep Bryant in the Tigers’ game plan moving forward.

Bryant, who is now in his senior year, has started each of Clemson’s first four games in 2018. He’s thrown for 461 yards, rushed for 130 yards in addition to for four touchdowns.

The NCAA’s four-game redshirt rule means Bryant can’t appear in another game for Clemson. That is if he wants to transfer to a program that will give him an opportunity to start.
