Boyd knocked out of game for No. 8 Clemson



CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd left the game in the third quarter after getting hit in the left leg against Boston College.

Boyd tried to get up off the field, but rolled back to the ground as trainers and coaches came out to help. Boyd finally was helped off, holding his left leg in the air as he was led to the sidelines for the eighth-ranked Tigers.

Boyd was headed to the locker room for X-rays.

Backup Cole Stoudt took over for Boyd, a sophomore who’s thrown for 15 touchdowns and just two interceptions in Clemson’s surprising 5-0 start.
