Tigers coach Tommy Bowden made the announcement Monday, two days after Jackson tore a quad tendon during a scrimmage. The school said surgery is scheduled for Tuesday.
Jackson, a senior, started 10 of 13 games last year and made 37 tackles, seven for losses. Jackson is also a vocal leader on Clemson's defensive front.
Bowden said Jamie Cumbie will take over while Jackson is sidelined. Jock McKissic will also get more playing time.
