Sophomore defensive tackle Carlos Watkins, who has missed the past two games because of injuries sustained in an automobile accident, is not yet ready to return to the field, Dabo Swinney said.
"Carlos is still out," he said. "Structurally, he's fine. The biggest thing is that he picked up these massive bruises - I can't even describe it - on both legs. They're trying to drain the blood out of there to improve his mobility.
"He's a lot better, but he's still not ready to put his hand to the ground and go play football. He is making progress."
The outlook for the weekend looks good for two of the three players injured during the Syracuse game.
Safety Travis Blanks, who suffered a strain PCL in a knee, worked out on Monday.
"Travis looked really good yesterday, and again today," Swinney said. "So I'm starting to get more hopeful about him. He ran great yesterday, and today we'll have him do some cutting and planting."
Martin Jenkins had surgery to repair a broken bone in his thumb, and Swinney is hopeful he'll be ready to play against BC.
"It just depends on how much the swelling goes down," Swinney said. "He'll have a cast on it."
He said it's day-to-day with freshman linebacker Ben Boulware, who hyperextended a knee, but had no ligament damage.
"Ben's still a little sore, so I'd say that he's questionable at this point," Swinney said. "We should know more on Wednesday."
