Lattimore hyperextended right knee
South Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore hyperextended his right knee against Tennessee, causing injury to several ligaments, the school said in a release Sunday. Coach Steve Spurrier said the injury is something Lattimore can come back from to play football again. There were no fractures or additional injuries, according to team physician Jeffrey Guy. Spurrier visited Lattimore on Sunday and said the junior had a good attitude about his condition. Spurrier said Guy was able to put Lattimore’s knee back in place soon after he was taken from the field to the hospital. Spurrier said the injury was significant, but discounted speculation Lattimore never would play football again. Lattimore has not used a redshirt season so he could take as long as necessary to recover and still return to the Gamecocks for the 2014 season.
