Gamecocks Banged Up - Need Time To Heal

Injury update - OT Travelle Wharton (left ankle sprain); S Jamacia Jackson (low back strain); C John Strickland (left knee bruise); Ol Jabari Levey (hip pointer). Wharton's ankle sprain is considered to be significant. "You cannot afford to lose a player the caliber of Travelle Wharton," said Coach Holtz ...

"Plus, we're not sure about John Strickland. We'll meet as a staff later today and talk about personnel. I'm not sure what we will do along the offensive line. We could move Na'Shan Goddard to left tackle, or Woodly Telfort , Jeff Barnes or even Jabari Levey. We'll have to wait and see." ... "Travelle Wharton is the leader of this football team," said Coach Holtz. "He's had an ankle injury before (missed one game in 2001 and one game in 2002). I anticipate he could be out for the next couple of weeks. Travelle sets the tempo and sets the standard for the rest of the players. He's not a real loud player, but boy, is he a leader."
