CLEMSON — Clemson football coach Dabo Swinney said right tackle Gifford Timothy (knee) has been unable to practice this week and will not play in the Ball State game Saturday.

Timothy had surgery to repair a damaged meniscus last month. Timothy started and played all but one snap vs. Auburn. He left the game late in the fourth with discomfort.

Swinney said freshman Shaq Anthony likely will start in his place.
