CLEMSON — Clemson coach Dabo Swinney says receiver Martavis Bryant will have his playing time reduced against Wake Forest for making throat-slashing gestures following a score catch against N.C. State last week.
Swinney said Tuesday that he was unaware of Bryant’s antics until reviewing tape of the game.
The coach says the gestures are not representative of the Tigers program and Bryant will face discipline. No. 3 Clemson (3-0, 1-0 ACC) plays the Demon Deacons (2-2, 0-1) at Memorial Stadium on Saturday.
Bryant caught two touchdown passes in Clemson’s 26-14 victory over North Carolina State on Thursday night.
Clemson will also be without reserve offensive lineman Isaiah Battle, who was suspended by Swinney after punching a Wolfpack player late in the game.
