COLUMBIA, S.C. — The South Carolina football team came out of its 34-27 win over Vanderbilt relatively unscathed Saturday night.
Senior guard Cory Helms, who missed the last few weeks with a banged-up ankle, re-aggravated the injury against the Commodores.
“He’s fine. He did tweak the ankle. He felt like he could go back in the game. We’ll evaluate it, but he should be fine next week,” coach Will Muschamp said. “I think, from an injury standpoint, I think that was it. Dennis Daley is fine.”
Helms offered a similar message after the Gamecocks’ sixth win of the season.
Great team win! 6-2! Also I'm fine everyone thank you! See ya in Athens 🐔🐔🐔

Freshman linebacker Sherrod Greene did not dress out against Vanderbilt because of an injury he suffered two weeks ago vs. Tennessee.
“He practiced this week and it was a game-time decision. … He ought to be able to go against Georgia. He should be fine,” Muschamp said. “It’s one of those things, you continue to wear and tear on it, it’s not going to get any better. We felt the best thing was to hold him.”
Right tackle Zack Bailey, who’s been out since the Kentucky game with an ankle injury, played most, if not all of the snaps against Vanderbilt.
“It was extremely [disappointing],” Bailey said, when asked about missing the last few contests.
“This is a game I love. This is my passion. This is a game I take very seriously, so sitting on the sideline, sitting at home, it was a struggle for me. I wish I could have been there at [Texas] A&M with those guys, but they did good without me.”
