The South Carolina Gamecocks worked out for about two hours Saturday afternoon at the Bluff Road practice fields. The squad practiced in shoulder pads and shorts. Following the session, Head Coach Steve Spurrier addressed the media:

“Just another day – another practice day. Nothing exciting one way or the other. O.J. Murdock caught a few balls today. He’s sorta caught our eye a little bit lately. Freddie Brown’s doing some decent things. Sidney Rice is still limited a little bit, but he should be fine.”

On the status of Captain Munnerlyn: “They allowed him to practice. They gave him a clearance to practice because I guess they felt he would be cleared when they met on Monday. He got a waiver to practice for a couple of days. Our compliance people encouraged them to hurry up and meet on him.”

On the status of Kenrick Ellis: “We’re going to redshirt Kenrick. He’s got some issue of a grade at another high school, but he should be fine. He’s just got some paperwork he’s got to get circulated.”

On when he thinks Sidney Rice will be at full speed: “Thursday night. He should be ready to go Thursday night. We just don’t want him to get bumped around so he’s stayed out of some of the teamwork stuff.”

On Clark Gaston: “He cracked his hand somehow and he has a bad shoulder. He looks like he’s destined to redshirt.”

On the fullback situation: “Lanard (Stafford) and (Bryan) Kingery, who’s coming around. He’s done a pretty good job for us. He’s a candidate for a scholarship probably next year.”

On Brandon Isaac: “He’s eligible to practice. I think he’s going to have surgery on his shoulder. I think he wants to redshirt. He may redshirt and play them all next year.”

On Terrence Campbell: “He’s going to have surgery tomorrow. He’s got a knee that slipped out during practice one day. No contact, just running around doing an agility drill. He’ll be redshirted too.”
