(Photo by Streeter Lecka/Getty Images)On Monday night, Dabo Swinney broke the news that Bryton Constantin would miss the rest of the season due to an injury. Unfortunately for the four-star linebacker, he tore his ACL for the second time this year.Back in February, Constantin tore his ACL playing basketball. Clemson didn’t expect him to play at all during his freshman season because of the time it would take for him to rehab.Constantin was recovering nicely from his knee injury, but then tore his ACL again during rehab.Swinney talked about the injury on Monday, saying “You hate it. Hate it for him. I think they’re gonna fix it Friday. Our doctors are going to do it.” Although it’s a difficult time for the Clemson linebacker, the team saw Amari Rodgers recover quite well from his own ACL injury. The star wideout played on Saturday and finished with 121 receiving yards and two touchdowns.Clemson’s doctors may have that same luck with Constantin this time around.Dabo follows up on his news from Monday that freshman LB Bryton Constantin has re-torn his ACL. Clemson’s doctors are going to repair it. “I hate it for him.” Says he can draw some inspiration from Amari Rodgers, however. “Better it happen now than in December or January.”— Grace Raynor (@gmraynor) September 17, 2019Since the Tigers weren’t preparing to play Constantin this season, the linebacker corps won’t be affected this season.The main concern is that Constantin will have to go through another long rehab for the second time this year.last_img
