Following the practice, head coach Steve Spurrier confirmed that freshman defensive back Brison Williams suffered a broken arm in Thursday's practice. He underwent surgery this morning, and will be sidelined for several weeks. (Anthem Note: Spurrier also told several media outlets that Williams is likely out for the season.)
In addition, freshman defensive tackle Phillip Dukes has been sidelined with a high left ankle sprain, suffered on Thursday.
The Gamecocks will hold their first "official" scrimmage of the fall on Saturday afternoon, beginning at 4 p.m. Saturday's scrimmage, and all remaining practices, are closed.
