(TSX / STATS) -- Clemson will be "cautious" during its bye week with quarterback Kelly Bryant, who suffered a concussion in Friday night's loss at Syracuse, coach Dabo Swinney said on a conference call Monday morning.

"Kelly has responded well over the weekend," Swinney said, according to the Greenville (S.C.) News. "They were pretty encouraged with him ... after evaluating him again this morning."

Bryant did not practice Monday and the team is off Tuesday.

"Hopefully by Wednesday he'll be out there moving around, but we're going to be really cautious with him this week," Bryant said. "Come Wednesday we'll have a much better feel for what he's going to be able to do practice-wise. Then they'll be off for the weekend."

Bryant, who had been hampered early in the Syracuse game because of a previous ankle injury, was knocked out of the contest late in the first half following a hard hit.

Bryant, a junior, has completed 107 of 159 passes for 1,259 yards, with four touchdowns and four interceptions. He also leads the seventh-ranked Tigers (6-1, 4-1 ACC) in rushing with 401 yards and seven touchdowns on 97 carries.

Clemson hosts Georgia Tech on Oct. 28.
