After a big win against Wofford on Senior Day, the South Carolina Gamecocks will close out the regular season in Columbia against their hated rival, the Clemson Tigers. Former and oft-injured cornerback Akeem Auguste will guide you through who’s likely in and who’s out for the Gamecocks this Saturday against the Gators.
Zero Augustes - Full go!
One Augustes - Should play, but won't start
Two Augustes - Game-time decision
Three Augustes - Questionable
Four Augustes - Unlikely
Five Augustes - Out
Antoine Wilder — Five Augustes
The linebacker, who has seen an increased role since the injury to starter Bryson Allen-Williams, dislocated his elbow against the Terriers.
Jamyest Williams — One Auguste
After sitting out against Wofford with a shoulder injury, the freshman defensive back will be ready to go for Clemson.
Shi Smith — One Auguste
A week after getting poked in the eye, Smith again had to leave a game early, this time after banging up his ankle on a kick return. Coach Will Muschamp sounded optimistic, so Smith was probably held out against the Terriers as a precaution.
Of note for Clemson
The Tigers will be getting some injured players back themselves. Left tackle Mitch Hyatt and a handful of defensive starters — Dexter Lawrence, Kendall Joseph, and Tre Lamar, along with Mark Fields — were held out of Clemson’s game against The Citadel last week. It’s unclear how many of them will return for South Carolina, but coach Dabo Swinney sounded hopeful that most would at least be available.
