CLEMSON, S.C. -- Clemson running back Duane Coleman broke his foot during practice Tuesday and won't be able to play for six to eight weeks.

Last season, Coleman led the Tigers with 615 yards rushing. He also caught 34 passes for 309 yards.

"With his loss we will have to evaluate what we are going to do offensively, especially on third down," coach Tommy Bowden said. "He can do things that our other backs can't."

The injury came when Coleman was tackled during a one-on-one drill on the first day of full-contact practice, Bowden said.
