Clemson's Hall to miss spring practice after knee surgery
CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -- Clemson safety Rashard Hall will miss spring practice after having surgery on a left knee that bothered him most of this past season.
Hall had 89 tackles last season to lead the Tigers as they won their first Atlantic Coast Conference championship in 20 years. The school said Hall had surgery earlier this week. He is expected back for his senior season.
Hall hurt the knee in Clemson's season opener against Troy. He missed the following week's game against Wofford before returning to play the final 12 games. He made at least eight tackles in each of the Tigers' final five games last season.
Hall has started 31 of his 40 games at Clemson.
