South Carolina quarterback Connor Shaw is out indefinitely after taking a big hit in the first quarter against UCF on Saturday afternoon. Shaw, a senior dual-threat quarterback for Steve Spurrier's offense, was injured on an option keeper when UCF linebacker Terrance Plummer hit him near his right shoulder, forcing a fumble on the play and sending Shaw to the locker room. The Golden Knights also recovered the fumble. Shaw returned to the Gamecocks' sidelines without his pads and his arm in a sling. The initial diagnosis is a right shoulder sprain, although X-ray results have not been announced. Shaw has accounted for 665 passing yards and six touchdowns this season while occasionally splitting time with junior Dylan Thompson, who replaced Shaw following the injury. Shaw also was hampered by a shoulder injury in 2012, suffering a hairline fracture in the season opener against Vanderbilt.
