CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Injured receiver Charone Peake's comeback for Clemson took a step back after knee surgery Friday.

Clemson announced that Peake was injured during workouts Wednesday and needed the operation. He's expected to miss at least a week of training camp that starts Aug. 1.

Peake missed the last 11 games of the season a year ago with a torn knee ligament.

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said Peake's ACL was fine and he expected the junior receiver to play when the Tigers open at Georgia on August 30th.

Peake had eight catches and a touchdown in Clemson's first two games of 2013. A healthy Peake is being counted on to make up for some of the production of Sammy Watkins, Clemson's record-setting wideout who left a season early for the NFL.
