Clemson's McElrathbey, guardian of 12-year-old brother, will miss season
CLEMSON, S.C. -- Clemson Tigers running back Ray Ray McElrathbey, who earned headlines after taking custody of his 12-year-old brother last year, suffered a season-ending knee injury.
McElrathbey was injured during practice Thursday, and spokesman Tim Bourret confirmed Friday that he tore his anterior cruciate ligament.
"At first I was upset," McElrathbey said. "But I am past that now. Sometimes God tests you in different ways and it makes you stronger in the end."
