The Gamecocks are leaning heavily on young talent on offense against a sorely depleted Missouri team in bizzaro-Columbia this weekend. This feels more like a season opener than an October game, but, it'll be a fascinating cacophony of questionable play calling and uneven execution on all sides and I'm so excited to see what insanity unfolds. Speaking of insanity, remember that it is an undeniable truth that Missouri left the Big 12 to join the SEC, even if this game makes it look like it happened the other way. This is the injury report and Mr. Auguste's army of tiny heads will provide you with the latest Gamecock injury news (for the backstory on that, click here.)
|Expected to play, might not start
Chris Lammons, CB
Expected back! Lammons has been recovering from a knee and rib injury and hasn't played since the season opener. He appears ready to go against Missouri, though. He practiced this week, and could--possibly--provide some consistency in the secondary. Can't hurt!
Chaz Elder, CB
Missed last week's game. Practiced a little Thursday. Not expected to be back against Missouri.
Brandon Wilds, RB
Wilds was unable to return from an injury he suffered against Georgia. He's out this week with a cracked rib that also caused him to miss the UCF game last week.
Alan Knott, C
Knott has reportedly shed a walking boot, but has not practiced this week. He suffered an ankle sprain against Georgia and is expected to miss multiple games. Boo, Georgia.
Deebo Samuel, WR
Samuel is still out with a hamstring injury. Hamstring injuries, like UGA, are the worst.
