No. 9 South Carolina practiced Wednesday afternoon at the Bluff Road Proving Grounds and Gamecock Central was there. A complete practice report with video will follow shortly.
Running backs coach Everette Sands hopes sophomore tailback Brandon Wilds will return to action within the next two weeks. There's a chance Wilds could return for the Mississippi State game.
Offensive line coach Shawn Elliott said senior guard Ronald Patrick is feeling better and got out of his cast Wednesday morning, but he doesn't know if Patrick will play Saturday. Freshman Na'Ty Rodgers and sophomore Will Sport have been practicing in Patrick's place this week.
Elliott said his offensive line is only as good as its last game, and that they played very well against Arkansas.
Receivers coach Steve Spurrier Jr. said sophomore receiver Shaq Roland won't start Saturday at Tennessee, but he will play. Spurrier Jr. also said junior wideout Bruce Ellington is questionable for Saturday. Ellington wore a yellow jersey but practiced today.
Spurrier Jr. said he was pleased with Shamier Jeffery's play against Arkansas, and that the sophomore wideout graded out better than any other receiver against the Razorbacks. Spurrier Jr. also said he would look to throw a few deep passes to Damiere Byrd against the Volunteers.
Added to the injury list Wednesday was junior defensive tackle J.T. Surratt. Surratt wore a yellow jersey during practice and a walking boot on his left foot. Others missing practice or in yellow jerseys were Bruce Ellington (ankle, in a boot), Cody Waldrop (ankle), Ronald Patrick (high ankle sprain, in a boot), Brandon Wilds (elbow, in a brace), Skai Moore (practiced, but was limited with a concussion), Chaz Elder (concussion), Devin Washington (concussion) and Mike Matulis (shoulder).
UP NEXT: South Carolina will again practice Thursday in preparation for the game at Tennessee this weekend.
