Quick practice recap

No. 13 South Carolina practiced Thursday afternoon at the Bluff Road Proving Grounds and Gamecock Central was there. A complete practice report will follow shortly.

The highlights:

Defensive coordinator Lorenzo Ward said Jadeveon Clowney missed practice today nursing a rib bruise but will be fine for Saturday's game. He said the rest of the defense was healthy.

Ward said the best linebackers will be the ones that play the most, and when asked if he was displeased with the play of the Spur position said he was displeased with the performance of the defense across the board.

Ward said the team worked this past week on fourth-quarter situations to avoid a repeat of the two 70-plus yard touchdown passes it allowed against Central Florida that put the game in jeaopardy with under two minutes left.

Ward said he was happy with the rotation of players on his defense during games, adding that his greatest asset as defensive coordinator is his bench.

INJURY REPORT: Missing practice or in yellow jerseys Thursday were Devin Washington (concussion) and Mike Matulis (shoulder).

UP NEXT: South Carolina will conduct a walk-through tomorrow afternoon at the Williams-Brice Stadium before playing Kentucky on Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
