Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence has tested positive for COVID-19 and will miss Saturday’s game against Boston College.
Lawrence released a statement on social media, saying his symptoms were mild and that “the only thing that hurts is missing an opportunity to be with my teammates this weekend and play the game I love.”
When Lawrence was announced as out, Clemson was listed as a 29.5-point favorite over Boston College. The game was taken off the board before being reposted with the Tigers as a 24-point favorite.
Under the rules established by the ACC’s medical advisory group, any player who tests positive for COVID-19 must isolate for at least 10 days after the test before returning to practice, assuming the player is no longer showing symptoms. That would also put Lawrence at risk of missing the top-ranked Tigers’ Nov. 7 game at No. 4 Notre Dame.
