COLUMBIA, SC (WIS/TheBigSpur) - Deebo Samuel has been South Carolina's and one of the nation's best players through two games and parts of a third. Head coach Will Muschamp announced his star junior wide receiver's season is over after suffering a broken leg in Saturday's 23-13 loss at home against Kentucky, The Big Spur reported

"He came off the field and tried to go again," Muschamp said. "I don't have all of the information, but I know he's out for the year."

Samuel had five receptions for 122 yards before he got his leg rolled up on a curl route close to Kentucky's sideline in the second half. Muschamp believes that is when the injury occurred. 

However, Samuel took to Twitter late Saturday night to dismiss the report. Both the wide receiver and his mother tweeted that Samuel suffered a low ankle fracture that would keep him sidelined for five to six weeks.
