USC Freshman Tackle Rebounding From Heat-Related Illness

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- South Carolina officials say freshman
offensive tackle Brandon Shell is doing fine after being treated
for heat-related illness following a two-hour morning practice in
helmets and shoulder pads.

South Carolina head football trainer Clint Haggard said the
6-foot-6, 316-pound tackle was taken to a local hospital Saturday
after Gamecock medical staff treated him on the practice fields.
Haggard says Shell was back at the stadium attending meetings with
his team Saturday afternoon.

Haggard says Shell will be re-evaluated periodically.

He says redshirt freshman offensive lineman Cody Gibson sprained
his right knee during Friday night's practice. He attended
Saturday's practice on crutches and will be re-evaluated weekly.

The Gamecocks will host their annual media day Sunday afternoon.
Their first full practice in full pads will by Sunday night.
