Clemson running back Travis Etienne says his hamstring is fine and he will be ready to go when the Tigers host Georgia Tech Saturday night in Death Valley.
The freshman running back said he hurt his hamstring early in the game against Syracuse but he continued to play with the pain. He ended up leading Clemson with 68 yards on just five carries, including a 52-yard touchdown run in the third quarter.
Etienne has four runs over 50 yards this season, which ranks fourth nationally. He is also the first Clemson running back since C.J. Spiller in 2009 to have four or more runs over 50 yards in a season.
