South Carolina Gamecocks cornerback Al Harris Jr. departed the first half of the game against the Tennessee Volunteers after an apparent shoulder injury suffered in the first quarter.

After a 15-yard run by the Volunteers' Jalen Hurd, Harris suffered what appeared to be a hurt shoulder while trying to make the tackle on the elusive running back. He was immediately taken to the locker room to be evaluated further by team doctors; his status for the remainder of the contest is unknown at this time.

Harris recorded four starts at corner in his freshman season, a campaign after which he was honored as one of the league's top first-year players after recording 21 tackles. Thus far in 2015, Harris has recorded 22 tackles and broken up four passes while appearing in all eight games of this season.

We will continue to monitor Harris' situation and pass along any updates as they become available from the team.
