Justyn Ross out for 2020 season

Justyn Ross

Clemson wide receiver Justyn Ross will miss the entire 2020-2021 season. He will undergo spinal surgery to repair a fusion he had at birth, rendering him unable to play for the Tigers.

The Athletic’s Grace Raynor reported the news via Twitter on Monday afternoon.

Congenital fusion is when two cervical vertebrae are fused together. This requires surgery, especially for a football player, as it could cause major damage if a fracture occurs after a tackle.

In 2019, Ross collected 865 yards and eight touchdowns on 66 receptions. This was a step down in production from his 2018 season. His freshman campaign saw him rack up 1,000 yards and nine touchdowns on 20 less receptions.

It is unclear whether Ross will ride his 2019 season into the 2021 NFL Draft, or if he will return to Clemson after next season.
