“We’d rather have Marcus on our team, that’s for dang sure,” Spurrier said. “In life, sometimes you’ve got to move on with whatever hand you’re dealt.”

Senior Kenny Miles will be South Carolina’s starter with freshman Mike Davis serving as backup.

Lattimore is expected to be re-evaluated this week. He’s already made it back once through the gut-wrenching rehab process, returning as one of the SEC’s top backs this season. He finishes this year with 662 yards and 10 touchdowns. Lattimore scored on a 28-yard run against Tennessee, adding to his school record of 41 career TDs.

Vols receiver Justin Hunter said Tennessee players wanted to show their respect for Lattimore.

“We felt for him. We knew he came off a knee injury and for this to happen to him is bad,” Hunter said. “The whole team just wanted to go out and show support.”

Whatever decisions Lattimore makes about his future, he’s got Spurrier’s blessing.

“We’ll just go a day at a time and allow the doctors and Marcus and a lot of prayers do their work,” Spurrier said.
