COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Injured quarterback Connor Shaw was back at practice Wednesday for No. 9 South Carolina.
Shaw sustained a deep bone bruise in his throwing shoulder in last Thursday night’s 17-13 victory at Vanderbilt. He hadn’t practiced since the game and coach Steve Spurrier said his status for Saturday’s home opener against East Carolina (1-0) was wait-and-see.
Shaw came back in after his injury and led South Carolina (1-0) on a fourth-quarter touchdown drive that put the Gamecocks ahead for good. Shaw finished with 92 yards rushing. He was also 7-of-11 passing for 67 yards.
