The school announced that Ngata would be absent alongside fellow wide receivers E.J. Williams and Frank Ladson Jr., who've both had injuries this season. It leaves the Tigers' receiving corps desperately thin.
The Tigers' passing game has struggled mightily through six games, with quarterback D.J. Uiagalelei ranking 100th nationally in passer rating. He's completing just 55.7% of his throws with four touchdowns and three interceptions this year. Clemson has yet to top 19 points in regulation against an FBS foe.
For the season, Ngata has 18 catches for 352 yards and one touchdown.
