CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -Clemson's Ray Ray McElrathbey will have something else to overcome this season.
McElrathbey, a tailback who earned national awards after taking custody of younger brother Fahmarr last summer, had arthroscopic knee surgery in the past week, the school said Tuesday.
While the surgery will limit his offseason workouts, McElrathbey is expected to be ready when the Tigers open practice Aug. 4.
McElrathbey started last fall as a defensive back. He played on special teams and made six tackles. However, he made national headlines for bringing his brother to live with him on campus because of their mother's drug problems.
McElrathbey was shifted to running back at the end of last season. He's listed third behind Tiger stars James Davis and C.J. Spiller.
