VIDEO: Update on Fall Camp 8/18

The Gamecocks returned to the Bluff Road practice fields Monday afternoon, and for the first time during fall camp, South Carolina began to prepare for the season-opener against Texas A&M next Thursday, August 28.

Junior offensive guard Mike Matulis, who was injured in Saturday’s scrimmage has been diagnosed with a left knee sprain and will be re-evaluated in a couple of weeks.

“We don’t need anybody else hurt, that’s for sure,”
head coach Steve Spurrier said.

“Hopefully Mike may have a chance to get back by mid-year. We’ll just have to wait and see. They’re going to try to treat him for a while and not operate. Offensive linemen don’t have to plant and cut and jump too much. If he can stay solid in there and he’s got a pretty good range of motion, they can play offensive line without a real super knee. So we’ll see if we can get him to that point.”

Also adding on to the injuries, sophomore cornerback Jamari Smith suffered a broken left foot in Saturday’s scrimmage and will be out for the 2014 season.

Check out what the team had to say after practice Monday afternoon.

The Gamecocks will be back on the practice fields Tuesday night at 7:15 p.m. and practice will be closed.
