CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Clemson starting defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence is out of the game with Florida State due to a foot injury that's hampered him the past few weeks.

Lawrence, the 6-foot-5, 340-pound sophomore, was in sweats and a walking boot on his right foot during warmups. Lawrence had started the previous nine games, making 33 tackles.

Jabril Robinson and Nyles Pinckney are listed as Lawrence's backups.

Lawrence was the Atlantic Coast Conference defensive freshman of the year in Clemson's national championship season in 2016. He finished the year with 79 tackles and set the school freshman record with seven sacks.
