Clemson wide receiver out for season

Posted: Updated:
CLEMSON, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Clemson's starting receiver, Charone Peake, tore his ACL at practice on Monday and he will be out for the rest of the season.

Head coach Dabo Swinney said Peake suffered the injury in a simple non-contact drill.

"This is a big loss, Charone was having a great year and was going to have a great year," said Swinney. "We are thin at receiver with just six scholarship players now. We like to carry 10 at that position. We have good players, but we don't have a lot of bodies."

Clemson hopes to give Peake a medical red shirt for the rest of the year so he will be a junior next year. Clemson said this has yet to be determined.

Adam Humphries would move into Peake's starting position, according to Swinney.

Peake is from Moore, SC, and went to Dorman High School.
