"We're trying to work him more and more and give him more reps," said Johnson of Lee. "We're bringing him as fast as he can come. I think he's getting more and more."
Washington's hold on the starting job appears to be secure.
"I just felt like the way the game was going Tevin gave us the best chance to win the game," Johnson said of last week's loss. "That's why (Lee) didn't play more."
Johnson didn't share his plans for Lee's playing time against Clemson.
"Most games we'll try to have a plan to get him in," he said. "As it warrants and as it progresses, he'll play more and more."
