Clemson DT Dexter Lawrence will not play against Florida State

Clemson comes into its Week 11 matchup against Florida State with a huge advantage in the trenches. But that edge took a slight hit before the game on Saturday afternoon.

According to Clemson beat writer Matt Connolly of The State reported defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence is wearing a walking boot and will not play against the Seminoles on Saturday.

Lawrence has recorded 28 tackles, including 2.5 tackles for loss and 1.5 sacks this year. He also has a forced fumble. Last year as a freshman, Lawrence posted 9.0 tackles for loss and 6.5 sacks.

Fortunately for Clemson, they have plenty of depth along the defensive line. The Tigers have at least eight different defensive linemen with at least 0.5 sacks. Sophomore Clellin Ferrell and junior Austin Bryant lead the team with 6.5 sacks each.

With a victory Saturday, Clemson will clinch its third straight Atlantic Division title.
