Connor Shaw to miss practices
South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier said starting quarterback Connor Shaw can barely lift his right arm and will miss the next few days of practice. “It’s wait and see right now,” Spurrier said Sunday. Shaw was injured when he took a helmet to his right shoulder in the ninth-ranked Gamecocks’ season-opening 17-13 victory at Vanderbilt last Thursday night. Shaw was diagnosed with a deep bone bruise. The hopeful news, Spurrier said, was that there was no damage to the shoulder joint. Still, Shaw won’t practice until at least Wednesday and that puts his status for Saturday’s home opener against East Carolina (1-0) in serious doubt.
