COLUMBIA, S.C. – Will Muschamp was hopeful that Donell Stanley would be “close to 100 percent” for South Carolina’s Saturday trip to Florida, but it is looking less that way.
The South Carolina coach updated the status of the sophomore offensive guard on Wednesday’s SEC coaches teleconference. Muschamp said Stanley did not practice Wednesday, as he continues to work back from a high ankle sprain suffered in USC’s season-opening win at Vanderbilt.
“It has been sore,” Muschamp said. “Since he has come back, he has practiced. But has not been totally full speed yet. He’s been cleared to practice, but sometimes that is a far cry from being healthy to play. We held him today.
“I think he can play in an emergency situation on Saturday.”
The 6-foot-4, 325-pound Stanley opened the season as South Carolina’s starting right guard.
