Clemson backup tight end Jordan Leggett will miss Thursday's game against Georgia Tech due to an unspecified team rules violation, according to head coach Dabo Swinney.

Leggett, a true freshman from Navarre, Fla., has 10 receptions for 89 yards on the year, two of which have gone for touchdowns. Before this suspension, Leggett appeared to be earning a larger role in the Tiger offense, having set a career high for catches and yards last week against Virginia, marking his third consecutive game with a reception.
The Tigers may not need him, though, as they have been 10-point favorites in Vegas all week.
