Skai Moore is on the shelf for the entire 2016 season after having surgery on a herniated disc in his neck. While his experience is missed on the Gamecocks’ roster, he continues to progress and get healthy for his return in 2017.

Will Muschamp updated Moore’s recovery in his weekly press conference on Tuesday, saying that the linebacker has begun to get himself back into football shape following his recovery from surgery.

Moore led the Gamecocks with 117 tackles last year, among the top players in the SEC in that department. A second-team All-SEC pick, he mulled making the jump to the NFL after his junior season but decided to return as a senior. With his injury, he was forced to redshirt and return in 2017. The team has relied on players like Bryson Allen-Williams, T.J. Holloman and Jonathan Walton to fill the void in Moore’s absence, and his return next year will be critical as the unit loses Holloman and Walton to graduation.
