Shaw cleared to practice for banged up Gamecocks

COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) - South Carolina quarterback Connor Shaw has been cleared to return to practice and coach Steve Spurrier thinks he's on track to play when the 15th-ranked Gamecocks take on Florida this weekend.

Shaw had suffered a concussion in last week's loss to Arkansas. Spurrier said Shaw was tested by doctors and given the green light for some throwing at practice. Spurrier said he'll also work backup Dylan Thompson in with the first team in case Shaw is unable to go.

More problematic for the depleted Gamecocks is the condition of safety DeVonte Holloman, who also suffered a concussion last week but has not been cleared to practice and is questionable to play against the Gators.

The injuries are the latest is long list Spurrier has dealt with this season.

Antonio Allen's condition also remains up in the air. He suffered a neck sprain during practice last week and has had muscle spasms all week. He did not play in Saturday's game.

The Gamecocks will take on the Florida Gators at Williams-Brice Stadium Saturday at noon. It will be USC's final SEC game for the year. The Citadel and the Palmetto State showdown with Clemson will both be played at home as well.

With Georgia now in the driver's seat in the SEC East, they have two SEC games left against the Auburn Tigers and the Kentucky Wildcats. If USC beats Florida and Georgia loses to Auburn or Kentucky, the Gamecocks have the tie-breaking win over the Bulldogs and it will catapult them into the SEC Championship game for the second year in a row.

Until then, the Gamecocks will have to lick their wounds and hope for the best. And probably cheer for Auburn or Kentucky.
