The Gamecocks' leading receiver -- by yards (332) and receptions receptions (21) -- sprained his foot late in the first half of the Arkansas game, and his status for the Tennessee game was unknown at certain points during the week. But Bruce was able to practice fully on Thursday, and Steve Spurrier seemed optimistic about his availability for Saturday.
Spurrier: "Bruce (Ellington) is pretty close to full speed. I think he’s going to play a lot. If not, Pharoh Cooper is ready."— Josh Kendall (@JoshatTheState) October 17, 2013
The Gamecocks' starting right guard sprained his right ankle in the fourth quarter of the Gamecocks' 52-7 demolition of Arkansas. Spurrier said on Thursday that the senior lineman is doubtful but will travel with the team just in case he makes a miraculous recovery. Will Sport is expected to make the start at RG.
The freshman linebacker led the Gamecocks in tackles but also suffered a concussion that threatened to keep him out of Saturday's game in Knoxville. However, it appears as though Moore is suffering no ill effects from the head trauma he suffered in Fayetteville and will be ready to play against Tennessee.
Elder started at free safety and had a strong game agains the Razorbacks but, like Skai, Chaz also suffered a concussion. Elder's concussion is apparently more severe, to the point that he has been ruled out for Tennessee. Brison Williams and either J.J. Marcus or T.J. Gurley will be the starters at safety.
The Gamecocks' junior defensive tackle was in a walking boot this week and was described by Steve Spurrier as "doubtful," making the number of Auguste heads that JT Surratt gets an easy call. Phillip Dukes and Gerald Dixon, Jr. will pick up the slack on the interior defensive line.
Waldrop has been battling foot and ankle injuries all season, and an aggravation of his sprained ankle is expected to keep him from traveling to Knoxville with the team.
Clowney appears to be fully recovered from the rib injury that kept him out of the Kentucky game. The only thing potentially holding him back at this point is whether or not he decides to get on the team bus.
