Chad Kelly hurts knee at Clemson spring football game

Niagara Gazette — Former St. Joe's Collegiate Institute standout Chad Kelly suffered what was believed to be a torn anterior cruciate ligament during Clemson University's spring Orange and White football game on Saturday.

Website TigerNet.com quoted Clemson head football coach Dabo Swinney as saying an MRI will be performed this morning to determine the extent of Kelly's knee injury.  

"I expect him to be back at some point this year, just not September," Swinney told TigerNet.com. 

Kelly, the nephew of former Buffalo Bills quarterback and Hall of Famer Jim Kelly, was injured during his second offensive drive of the game after leading the Orange squad to a touchdown in their first possession.

Kelly addressed his injury on his Twitter account, saying: "Thank you everyone for your support. My injury is in God's hands now. Hope my knee will be good, and I'll come back even more hungry."
