Dylan Wonnum missed South Carolina's 24-7 victory over Kentucky on Saturday night with an ankle injury, Gamecock head coach Will Muschamp confirmed after the game.
The right tackle injured the ankle in the team's loss to Missouri last week and will miss three to four weeks.
"How it's not broken, I don't know," Muschamp said. "It was on Rico's touchdown run. He got high-lowed. Just a bad deal. It's probably going to be three or four weeks would be my guess.
Freshman Jaylen Nichols started in Wonnum's place at right tackle.
South Carolina played Saturday without defensive tackle Keir Thomas — who was not scheduled to play because of an ankle injury — and safety Jamel Cook. Both were in Miami attending the funeral of a high school teammate. Both will be back with the team Tuesday.
A few other Gamecocks had injuries Saturday.
Running back Rico Dowdle injured an ankle. The senior, who had rushed 15 times for 102 yards, limped off just a minute into the fourth quarter. Muschamp did not know the severity of the injury when asked about it after the game.
"I feel good. My ankle got rolled up a little bit, but I'm fine," Dowdle said after the game.
Special teams' ace Caleb Kinlaw injured a shoulder and did not return.
Cornerback Jaycee Horn and defensive tackle Kobe Smith were also injured but did return.
