College football world reacts to news star Clemson WR Justyn Ross will miss 2020 season
The Clemson Tigers got some awful news on Monday, as coach Dabo Swinney revealed that star WR Justyn Ross would have neck surgery and miss the 2020 season.
Now, according to a couple of doctors, including former NFL doctor David J. Chao, Ross’s future in the sport is in question:
I am very concerned that the combination of June surgery and congenital issue puts him likely out for this season and brings his football career into question. Hope this is not the case.🙏 https://t.co/0nNlhzP3pj

This is an issue bc some bones move too much and can encroach on the spinal cord and/or brain stem
It's a miracle he's played football this long. Unfortunately this as career threatening of a condition as there is

Around the college football world, Ross received an outpouring of support, with many expressing their hope that Ross would be able to play football again:
