Spiller gets his shot; GT's Smith out

TAMPA, Fla. -- No need for Clemson fans to panic over running back C.J. Spiller's brief departure. A school spokesman said it's been routine for him to head into the locker room around that time in the first quarter to get a shot for his turf toe.

One other quick observation. It looks like Georgia Tech is doing just fine on the offensive line without starting left tackle Phil Smith. He suffered a lower leg injury and will not return. Nick Claytor came in, but it looks like they moved him to the right side. Georgia Tech continues to run the ball well, but has struggled to throw it.
