As first reported by TigerNet, Hunter Renfrow suffered a broken hand during Clemson’s week 2 contest against Troy. After making an acrobatic touchdown catch, his second of the season, he crumpled to the ground. He eventually got up and appeared okay, but it was likely this play (pictured above) during which he was injured.

Clemson will now rely more heavily on Deon Cain and to a lesser extent on Trevion Thompson and Cornell Powell. Clemson’s receiving corps came into the season hyped as the best in the nation. They will now have to prove their depth.

He will miss important games against Georgia Tech and Louisville, but may return in time for Florida State.
