Clemson star quarterback Trevor Lawrence tested positive for COVID-19 ahead of the Tigers’ No 1 game against Boston College on Saturday, Lawrence and the schedule were announced Thursday night Lawrence’s positive test was take place on Wednesday after testing negative on Sunday, Clemson athletic director Dan Radakovich told CBS Sports

Lawrence will miss Saturday’s game and, while his status for next week’s No 4 Notre Dame showdown is unknown, it seems possible he could be cleared

« I tested positive for COVID-19 and my symptoms were relatively mild as I followed the Clemson and ACC protocol The only thing that hurts is missing a chance to being with my teammates this weekend and playing the game I love, ”Lawrence said in a statement « I hate that I can’t be there but I’m going to watch isolation and shoot for our guys while I wait for the opportunity to join the team. »

According to CCA guidelines, athletes who test positive must self-isolate « for at least 10 days from symptom onset / positive test »

Until Lawrence returns, the Tigers will likely look to real debutant DJ Uiagalelei, a five-star prospect in the 2020 recruiting class Uiagalelei has completed 12 of 19 passes for 102 reserve yards this season

« Trevor has authorized us tonight to announce that he has tested positive for COVID-19 and is now in isolation, » Swinney said in a statement « He’s doing fine with mild symptoms but won’t be available for this week’s game against Boston College While Trevor will certainly be missed, this is an opportunity for other guys to step up and we are excited to compete with a very good team from BC on Saturday. »
