Considering Shaq Lawson’s status as one of the most talented players on the Clemson roster, his health heading into Monday’s national championship game has rightfully been a huge storyline this week.
Lawson, who sustained a knee sprain against Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl, said he’s “60 percent” healthy, according to Bleacher Report’s Christopher Walsh, and is feeling optimistic about his chances of playing against Alabama in two days’ time.
“There’s a good chance I will play,” Lawson said to Michael Casagrande of AL.com.
Lawson has recorded 10.5 sacks and 23.5 tackles for loss in his junior season.
“I’m feeling alright. I feel like I’m getting better everyday, just trying to get my knee back stronger,” Lawson told reporters.
