Will Muschamp after South Carolina’s win over Vanderbilt on Saturday night that the team should get running back Rico Dowdle (knee), offensive lineman Dylan Wonnum (ankle) and receiver Shi Smith (hamstring) back for its game against Appalachian State next week.
Dowdle hasn’t played since the Gamecocks’ game against Florida on Oct. 19, while Wonnum hasn’t played since the team’s game against Missouri on Sept. 21.
Smith “tweaked” the hamstring, Muschamp said, at the team’s Tuesday practice. He did some work Wednesday and Thursday, but SC coaches did not feel comfortable with him playing.
Josh Vann broke a bone in a hand. It’s casted, but Muschamp did not know after the game the length of a recovery.
Nick Muse, who was seen on the field after the game using crutches with a brace on his right knee, will have an MRI Saturday night.
Jaylen Nichols “got rolled up” in the team’s game last week against Tennessee and did not play Saturday.
Tavien Feaster played Saturday with a groin injury. “He’s had that,” Muschamp said. “He’s managing through that right now.”
