Clemson star Wayne Gallman will miss the rest of the Tigers’ game against NC State due to a head injury.
Clemson running back Wayne Gallman has been ruled out for the rest of the Tigers’ game against NC State on Saturday with a head injury.
The Georgia native was injured at the end of an 18-yard catch-and-run in the first quarter when he took a hard hit to the head from Wolfpack defensive back Dravious Wright. Gallman, whose ball security has never been questioned, fumbled on the play and NC State recovered.
There was no flag for targeting on the play.
The redshirt junior, who had rushed 88 times for 475 yards and five touchdowns coming into the game, was helped off of the field by the training staff and taken into the injury tent on the sideline.
If Gallman did suffer a concussion, he will have two weeks to get through concussion protocol before the ACC Atlantic division tilt against Florida State.
Redshirt sophomore Adam Choice replaced Gallman at running back following the injury and will be depended upon to carry the load the rest of the way against the Wolfpack. His cousin, Tashard Choice, was a running back at Georgia Tech and played in the NFL, notably with the Dallas Cowboys. His uncle, Joe Burns, was also a running back at Georgia Tech and played with the Buffalo Bills.
