Clemson’s Justyn Ross Ruled Out For Season With Upcoming Surgery

By Austin Payne Staff Writer for Telegraph Local |Owner of  Macro Sports

Clemson’s star wide receiver Justyn Ross will be expected to miss the entire 2020 season after expecting to undergo surgery on an apparent “congenital fusion” on his spine.

Justyn Ross came onto the season strongly as a freshman during 2018 while the team had a plethora of other options within the offense and relied heavily on the running game. Despite all this, Ross’s talent was apparent early as he racked up an even thousand yards and 9 scored on 21 ypc. 

He continued his ascent throughout the 2019 season as a sophomore, using his versatile 6’4 205 pound frame to hang up 865 yards and another 8 touchdowns, falling off slightly only as the ball began to be spread around more.

Ross suffered what was originally thought to have just been a stinger of sorts in spring practice before that was derailed due to the pandemic, but it turned out to be more serious than this.

X-rays though revealed the structural damage, and it was determined that precautionary measures were necessary to prevent further injury.

“He feels perfectly fine,” Swinney said, “but doctors know he’s at risk.”

Doctors are optimistic that Ross will be able to undergo this procedure and return to his former self at some point, although his path to being the first round talent we know him to be is now skewed, as Dabo also said he was unaware of anyone who has undergone this specific surgery and returned.
