Bryant came out in the third quarter of last week’s 28-14 victory over Wake Forest because of a left ankle sprain. Bryant wore a walking boot after the game and said he was uncertain about his status.
But Swinney said Wednesday that Bryant had practiced and was prepared to play when the Tigers (6-0, 4-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) head north to play the unranked Orange (3-3, 1-1).
Bryant has hardly missed a beat this season in taking over for two-time Heisman Trophy finalist Deshaun Watson. Bryant has passed for 1,259 yards and four touchdowns and run for seven scores to help the Tigers defeat top-15 opponents Auburn, Louisville and Virginia Tech.
