USC Sports Information
Posted Aug 19, 2003
Tuesday marked the end of two-a-day preseason football practice for the South Carolina Gamecocks. USC will have one practice on Wednesday, with classes beginning on Thursday ...
* Two players who had been excused from Monday afternoon's practice - freshman tailback
and sophomore defensive end
- were back on the practice field Tuesday morning.
* Injury update: DT
, who had been out the past week with a knee sprain, has been cleared to return to full contact. DE
has been battling asthma and did not work out Tuesday morning. Capers did return to the practice field for the afternoon workout. LB
(knee) has returned on a limited basis. DL Fran Person is out with pneumonia and CB Rachiem Monroe has been battling a virus. In the afternoon workout, WR
dislocated a finger on his right hand but he is expected to be okay.
did not practice Tuesday morning or afternoon due to the fact that his final admission transcripts have not been received by USC. There was a 14-day period in which Silas could practice while the school awaited the final documents. Once that official transcript is received, verified and admitted, Silas may return to the practice field.
* Following the morning workout, head coach
met with the media. Here are some of his comments:
"I've been pleased with how the defense has responded the past couple of days. We need to put more work into the kicking game. Dondrial Pinkins looks much more confident and comfortable at quarterback this year. He's had a good preseason camp. Our offensive line has been impressive. With
, John Strickland and
in that first unit, that is an imposing group. It is at least an $8 cab ride just to get around Jabari Levey.
is playing exceptionally well without the football. He doesn't get the ball much, but when he does touch it, he averages seven yards a carry. He reminds me a lot of Rodney Culver (former
back). He's unselfish, he doesn't say a word; he just gets the job done. The competition on both sides of the ball has been excellent."
