Demoted Clemson QB Bryant misses practice

Clemson quarterback Kelly Bryant did not attend practice Tuesday. It's his second missed practice, as coach Dabo Swinney excused him from Monday's practice to process his demotion from starter to backup.

Adam Rittenberg ESPN Staff Writer 

I've confirmed Clemson senior quarterback Kelly Bryant did not attend Tuesday's practice for undisclosed reasons. Coach Dabo Swinney will address Bryant's status Wednesday on the ACC coaches' teleconference. Swinney gave Bryant the day off Monday after informing him that true freshman Trevor Lawrence would start this week against Syracuse. Bryant has played in four games but still could take advantage of the new rule allowing players to retain a season of eligibility.
