COLUMBIA, S.C. -- South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier said running back Marcus Lattimore had his right knee dislocated against Tennessee, and the injury is something he can come back from to play football again.
Spurrier said the injury was significant, but discounted speculation Lattimore never would play football again. Lattimore has not used a redshirt season so he could take as long as necessary to recover and still return to the Gamecocks for the 2014 season.
It's too bad for this guy and hopefully he can bounce back from it. It's pretty crazy they are already ruling out a return for the 2013 season and talking about redshirting. I'm obviously not a doctor, but there's still 10 months to go until that season starts.
