Clemson's freshman quarterback DeShaun Watson suffered a slight crack in his collarbone during Monday's scrimmage at the team's indoor practice facility.

"He played the entire scrimmage," said coach Dabo Swinney. "I am not really sure when he suffered the injury and I was not aware of it until after I met with the media after practice." 

Swinney initially said Watson hurt his wrist at the scrimmage, but the athletic department later said it was a collarbone. 

"This is a shame because he was having an outstanding spring," said Swinney.

Swinney said a doctor looked at him during the scrimmage and he then went to another doctor in Anderson afterwards.

Watson will be out for three weeks and will miss Clemson's Spring Game on Saturday, according to the athletic department.

"Fortunately this is not a serious injury.  I hate that he will miss the Spring Game.  I know a lot of people were anxious to see him make his debut in Death Valley," Swinney said. 

"But he will be fine by the time summer workouts start again in May. He does not require surgery."

Swinney said Watson will not need surgery and he will be fine by the time summer workouts start in May.
