Clemson WR Charone Peake out for season with torn ACL
Clemson starting wide receiver Charone Peake will miss the rest of the season after suffering a torn ACL in practice this week, Tigers head Dabo Swinney announced Wednesday, via NFL.com.
Third-ranked Clemson is off this weekend and will play North Carolina State on Sept. 19.
Adam Humphries, a junior, is expected to take Peake’s place in the starting lineup. He has seven receptions for 53 yards this season.
Peake had eight catches for 84 yards and a touchdown in two games this season after playing in all 13 games for Clemson last season.

Depth becomes an issue now behind Sammy Watkins, Martavis Bryant and Humphries. While redshirt freshman Germone Hopper and true freshmen T.J. Green an Mike Williams have talent, all three are relatively unproven. Hopper did have six catches for 66 yards and two TDs last weekend, but that was against FCS foe South Carolina State.
