Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney provided a new injury update for freshman quarterback Trevor Lawrence during a teleconference appearance this evening. Here’s the latest.Lawrence, a five-star freshman, had to leave his first-career start on Saturday after taking a big blow to his head in the comeback win over Syracuse.The true freshman QB is doing much better today, though, according to Swinney.Lawrence’s status for next weekend’s game has yet to be determined, though.“All that stuff is Danny and the doctor. He actually was really good, he was trying to come back in the game yesterday but anytime you get anything with the head and neck area, there’s just no room for error there. So they shut him down and he actually was really good after the game and he was very good this morning, felt great. I think they were very encouraged by what they saw. He’s going to work out and they’ll continue to evaluate him and hopefully will see. But will go with what we got. Based on what they said I would expect that, but that’s all up to those guys,” Swinney said.Clemson came from behind against Syracuse on Saturday, remaining undefeated on the season.The Tigers are set to take on Wake Forest next weekend.
The senior United Nations official in Kosovo, which the world body has administered since NATO forces responded to ethnic strife there in 1999, today stressed the broad international support enjoyed by a UN status proposal, saying it comes “at an ideal moment in history.”UN Special Representative Joachim Rücker urged participants at a townhall meeting in Klinë/Klina municipality to remain open to proposals put forward by the Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s Special Envoy for the status process, Martti Ahtisaari.“Even if some things don’t feel ideal to you, I would appeal to you to have a positive attitude towards the status package,” Mr. Rücker said. “Now we have the green light also from the European Union for Mr. Ahtisaari to go ahead to the next step,” he added.The Special Representative called on those wishing to express their opinion through demonstrations to do so peacefully. “At this point in time, we should not make any mistakes,” he said. “It would be very detrimental if developments in Kosovo would come in the way of the status process.” Earlier this month, Mr. Ahtisaari presented a provisional plan under which Kosovo would have the right to govern itself and conclude international agreements, including membership in international bodies, with an international civilian and military presence supervising the new arrangements and helping to ensure peace and stability.But the plan, which was presented to Serbia and to the ethnic Albanian Kosovo authorities, does not specifically mention independence for the province, which the UN has run since Western forces drove out Yugoslav troops in 1999 amid brutal ethnic fighting.Serbia rejects independence, a goal sought by many of Kosovo’s ethnic Albanians, who outnumber Serbs and others by 9 to 1. 17 February 2007The senior United Nations official in Kosovo, which the world body has administered since NATO forces responded to ethnic strife there in 1999, today stressed the broad international support enjoyed by a UN status proposal, saying it comes “at an ideal moment in history.”
