CLEMSON—Rising redshirt sophomore defensive end Richard Yeargin’s 2017 season is in serious doubt following a car crash that left Yeagin in the hospital for two days on bed rest.

Yeargin suffered a fractured neck similar to the injury sustained by former Lake Marion standout, and Clemson wide receiver, Mike Williams during the 2015 season.

In a statement on his Facebook page, Yeargin wrote:

“I want to personally take the time out to thank all of those who have been there to support me the last two days that I have been in the hospital on bed rest. After almost facing death I thank God he kept me hear to shed light on him. If it wasn’t for I would not be here today. #GodSpeed @ Greenville, South Carolina”

Yeargin has been a steady reserve for the Tigers through two seasons, amassing 29 career tackles (five for a loss) in 336 snaps over 22 games. He missed the final two games of last season with an injury.
