Clemson defensive tackle Tyler Davis needs surgery to repair a torn bicep and is expected to miss seven to eight weeks, coach Dabo Swinney said on his radio show Monday night.
Swinney also announced that running back Lyn-J Dixon has entered the transfer portal, a blow to the Tigers' backfield depth.
Davis was ESPN's No. 58 recruit for the 2019 class and was a key member of the team's defensive line as a true freshman. His sophomore season was disrupted by injuries, however, and he missed Clemson's opener this season against Georgia due to COVID-19 protocols.
