The South Carolina Gamecocks could be without junior DE Jadeveon Clowney in their season opener.
Clowney has a bruised shoulder.
“If (Clowney’s shoulder) doesn’t come around real soon, we may play without him the first game,” head coach Steve Spurrier told the media. “We’ve got a bunch of hurt guys who act like they are really hurt so right now they may not play.”

So I guess Jadeveon Clowney has a different definition of what’s in shape and what’s not than most of us. Clowney basically admits that he has been getting by on his freakish athletic ability:
