COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina quarterback Stephen Garcia
is walking around with his left arm in a sling, although coach
Steve Spurrier says he should be fine for the Southeastern
Conference championship game on Saturday.
Spurrier says Garcia hurt his left shoulder in the 29-7 victory
over Clemson last week. The Gamecocks trainers and medical staff
thought it best to protect the shoulder with the sling and brace.
Spurrier says Garcia didn't practice Monday and likely won't throw
on Tuesday either.
Spurrier expected Garcia to throw the football on Wednesday in
preparation for Saturday's matchup at the Georgia Dome with No. 2
Garcia has thrown for 2,646 yards with 18 touchdowns and nine
interceptions this season. He's 14th nationally in pass efficiency
