South Carolina fall practice recap: A.J. Turner, Perry Orth practice with first team on first day of full pads

Bits and pieces from the fourth day of preseason workouts.

The first day of full pads means that there’s bound to be some added intensity on the practice field for the Gamecocks. It was also the first day of the full team practicing together after the first four days were spent with split squads between the younger players and the veterans.

In the midst of that, the morning began with a little shakeup at running back...

Kendall’s right - “for what it’s worth” - as we don’t know if that will be seen more frequently during the next few days or if it’s just for motivation purposes. But Muschamp’s message in doing so is loud and clear. (I wrote about this re: David Williams yesterday.)

At QB, Perry Orth was with the first team, while Brandon McIlwain was with the second team.

Injury updates

Evan Hinson (meniscus) and Stephon Taylor (labrum surgery), who had been held out to recover, were back on the field today. Deebo Samuel, Bryan Edwards and Dante Sawyer were held out of full practice. No word on the reason, but Edwards had been recovering from that knee injury he suffered last year (although he was in the spring game). Larenz Bryant also didn’t participate, while K.C. Crosby (chest) was in, but with a yellow jersey. Alan Knott still isn’t at 100% (hand), but practiced wearing a club.
