CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) - Clemson part-time offensive line starter Joe Gore had his appendix removed Wednesday and will miss the Tigers’ next two games.

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney announced Gore’s condition after practice. The Tigers (2-2, 1-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) face North Carolina State (4-1, 0-1) on Saturday.

Gore started the Clemson’s first three games. He was a backup at tackle last week in a 50-35 victory over North Carolina. Gore was listed as backup to Clemson’s left and right tackle positions against the Wolfpack. He has averaged 47 snaps a game so far this season.

Gore’s absence further weakens Clemson’s depth on the offensive line. The Tigers had lost Patrick DeStefano and Gifford Timothy to career-ending injuries before the season. Then Shaq Anthony transferred in late August.
