There's a glimmer of hope for a beleaguered offensive line. Will Muschamp announced on his weekly radio show Zack Bailey and Cory Helms will be game-time decisions this weekend at Tennessee.
Both practiced this week, according to Muschamp and will make the trip to Tennessee, but their playing time will be determined later on before the game.
Bailey's missed the last three games with a high-ankle sprain and Helms the last two with an Achilles injury.
Malik Young, who missed last week with an ankle injury, will not travel with the team this week and is out.
There is hope, however, that Young could come back after the Gamecocks' bye week next week.
"I don't think he's physically ready to get going, but having the open week next week, certainly in our next ballgame he'll be able to play for us. We think he's pretty close."
Terry Googer, who was carted off the field against Texas A&M after a head injury, is progressing well, Muschamp said. He will not make the trip, though.
