After a worrisome number of injuries in the opener, the Gamecock's are largely on the mend in time for Kentucky. (Confused by the tiny heads? Click here.)
|One Auguste||Expected to play, might not start|
|Two Augustes||Game-time decision|
Connor Mitch, QB
Mitch left in the 4th quarter of last week's game against UNC after injuring his hip and did not return. He was held out of practice Monday, but reports indicate that he'll be ready to go by Saturday for his first start at Williams-Brice stadium.
Brandon Wilds, RB
Wilds was also banged up against the Tar Heels. He told the media on Tuesday that he was healthy for week 2, and hes expected to resume his regular ball carrying duties in the home opener despite a bruised shoulder.
Deebo Samuel, WR
Samuel suffered a hamstring injury against North Carolina. While the severity of the injury was not immediately clear, he returned to practice this week and looks like he'll be back in action against Kentucky. He's sorely needed, as the positional depth at WR got a little alarming during last week's game.
Chris Lammons, CB
As DC_3Tweets reported yesterday, Lammons has been sidelined with a rib injury. His injury makes way for Rico McWilliams and Al Harris Jr., but losing Lammons is not an insignificant blow against Kentucky's passing attack.
Cody Waldrop, OL
Offensive lineman Cody Waldrop broke a bone in his right ankle in practice this week. It's unclear whether he'll return this season. This is Waldrop's second serious injury in as many seasons. He made only 4 appearances in 2014 due to an injured knee that was surgically repaired in the off season.
