Dabo Swinney updated the status of Clemson's starting defensive end, Xavier Thomas, after he was absent from yesterday's BIG Weigh-In in Tiger Town.

According to Swinney, Thomas has been dealing with health issues from complications dealing with his battle with COVID-19 and strep throat. Swinney said Thomas’ family gave him permission to share the news.

Swinney said that Thomas’ case started before his return to Clemson in June.

Swinney said the plan is going to be similar to what Clemson did with James Skalski last year by taking advantage of the new redshirt rule in college football.

Many people had feared that Thomas’ absence meant he might choose to opt-out like Corey Farley at Virginia Tech, Micha Parsons at Penn State, and Greg Rousseau at Miami have done in recent days. 

We will have more from Swinney’s post-practice interview season to open the 2020 fall camp at Clemson.
