Star Clemson Tigers quarterback Tajh Boyd was carted off the field Saturday against the Boston College Eagles after suffering what appeared to be a left knee injury. He was able to put a little weight on his leg while making his way onto the cart. Clemson announced he'd be taken into the locker room for X-rays.
Boyd suffered an awkward hit while unloading a 62-yard pass to Sammy Watkins, then was hit again two plays later while completing a five-yard pass to Dwayne Allen. If you're looking for a reason why Clemson is 5-0 and likely to reach 6-0, Boyd's play so far is as big as any. Good news would mean a lot for Tigers fans.
True freshman Cole Stoudt took over for Boyd with about two quarters left in the game.
