COLUMBIA, SC ( - South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier said during his Sunday teleconference that running back Mike Davis is doubtful for Saturday night's game against East Carolina.

Davis left the game in the second half against Texas A&M with bruised ribs, which have been bothering him off and on since the first scrimmage in fall camp.

"Right now, he's sort of doubtful," Spurrier said. "Our trainers said he's not practicing for a few days. I guess later in the week, we'll see how he's conditioned. It's a bad bruise, bruised ribs, and it's painful right now."

Spurrier said backup Brandon Wilds will start and Shon Carson will play as well.

The Head Ball Coach also says that David Williams will see some action.

"David needs to play a little bit," Spurrier said. "He's going on his second year here now. He's a good sized back and I think he needs to carry the ball some. He will probably get some carries this coming week."
