South Carolina will be short one key defender Saturday against Florida.
Defensive tackle Taylor Stallworth is expected to be out for this week’s game against the Gators due to a chest injury, defensive coordinator Jon Hoke told The Post and Courier’s David Caraviello.
Stallworth will miss his second consecutive game after sitting out against Tennessee last week. He has seven tackles, including one for loss, in seven games played this season.
On the other hand, the Gamecocks may get back cornerback Al Harris Jr., who has been dealing with a shoulder injury. Cornerback Chris Lammons will start opposite of Rico McWilliams in place of Harris.
The coaching staff will determine Harris’ status after Friday’s practice.
