South Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore's injury during the Gamecock's victory over Tennessee overshadowed both the game and most of the rest of the college football action on Saturday. South Carolina head football coach announced on Sunday that running back had suffered a dislocated right knee, but said the injury wasn't career-ending.
"Spurrier said the injury was significant, but discounted speculation
Lattimore would never play football again. Lattimore has not used a
redshirt season so he could take as long as necessary to recover and
still return to the Gamecocks for the 2014 season.
"We're optimistic his football days are still ahead of him," Spurrier said. "There is a history of guys coming back from this."
Lattimore had previously injured his left knee in 2011 in a game against Mississippi State, which resulted in his missing the remainder of last season.
