CLEMSON -- The results of Kyle Parker's MRI were revealed to be negative Tuesday, a sigh of relief for Clemson's baseball and football teams.

Parker missed Saturday's football scrimmage and Monday's practice, and was held out of baseball games Saturday and Sunday.

Parker returned to Jack Leggett's lineup Tuesday night for the Tigers' game at Georgia.
