Marcus Lattimore’s status uncertain

South Carolina’s Marcus Lattimore (seen here last Saturday night against LSU) is questionable for this Saturday’s game at Florida.

South Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore did not practice Wednesday because of a bruised hip and coach Steve Spurrier said his junior star might not start Saturday against No. 3 Florida.  Spurrier had said Lattimore was running well earlier in the week, but the injury kept him out of Wednesday’s workout. Lattimore arrived at practice and watched from the sidelines.  If Lattimore can’t go, Spurrier said backup Kenny Miles and freshman Mike Davis would handle the load at tailback when the ninth-ranked Gamecocks (6-1, 4-1 Southeastern Conference) go against the Gators (6-0, 5-0).  And then there’s the flu bug, which Spurrier said has kept some Gamecocks from working out this week. Punt returner and starting receiver Ace Sanders missed practice Tuesday while receiver Bruce Ellington was out on Wednesday.  Spurrier was hopeful all players hit by the flu could play on Saturday.
