CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -- Clemson receiver DeAndre Hopkins is recovering from a concussion after a car wreck on the way to meet his teammates for a trip to Florida for the Orange Bowl.
The school says the sophomore was driving from his home to meet teammates on campus Tuesday morning when he was in a crash and suffered a mild concussion.
Hopkins is Clemson's second-leading receiver, with 62 receptions for 871 yards and four touchdowns this season. Coach Dabo Swinney says he hopes Hopkins can join the team in Miami. Swinney did not know if Hopkins would be able to play in the bowl game.
The 14th-ranked Tigers meet No. 23 West Virginia on Jan. 4 in the Orange Bowl.
