Clemson - Carolina: Injury Report

An in-depth look at the injuries headed into Saturday's big game.

Clemson: LB Leroy Hill showed up with a cast on his finger in practice this week but is expected to be ready for South Carolina.

"How effective tackling he'll be, I don't know," said Tommy Bowden on Monday.

WR Chansi Stuckey, who has been bothered by an ankle sprain the second half of the season, should be close to full strength Saturday.

South Carolina: QB Dondrial Pinkins's partially torn rotator cuff has been a problem for most of the season, forcing him to miss four games, including last week's 48-14 loss at Florida. "From last Thursday to today, I've improved a whole lot," Pinkins said on Monday. "Hopefully from here to Saturday I can get a whole lot better. My biggest concern right now is just getting back to help this team. If I'm able to help this team Saturday, I'll do that. If not, I'll hold out until the bowl game."

Pinkins did some did some limited throwing on Tuesday.

WR Troy Williamson (leg bruise), TB Daccus Turman (shoulder), WR Andrea Gause (ankle) and DE De'Adrian Coley (foot) are all expected to play against Clemson, but backup OG Chris Tucker is out for the season following knee surgery on Nov. 11. WR Travis Lee sprained his ankle Monday night at practice and is out.
