Shortly after leaving South Carolina’s spring game with an apparent arm injury, Gamecocks coach Will Muschamp ruled out Jamarcus King for the remainder of the scrimmage. The coach wasn’t too alarmed with the injury, but the senior defensive back could miss the next couple weeks of practice.
“He’ll be out the rest of the day,” Muschamp told SEC Network at halftime of the game. “He’ll probably have a plate put in his forearm. It could have been much worse but it wasn’t. He should be fine. He should be back lifting in two weeks.”
King sustained his arm injury in the first quarter of Saturday’s scrimmage. The training staff placed an air cast over his arm. Last season, King posted 56 total tackles along with 3 interceptions. He is expected to be one of the best defenders for South Carolina next season.
Smith just delivered a huge hit on Edwards. After the play, Jamarcus King is down on the field.

Oh man. South Carolina senior DB Jamarcus King's arm was just put in an air cast. Hate to see that. Is on verge of breakout season.
