COLUMBIA, S.C. — South Carolina football players met with reporters on Tuesday morning, to look ahead to this weekend’s game at Texas A&M.
Among the topics of conversation: Bryson Allen-Williams, the senior linebacker who will miss the rest of the season with a shoulder injury.
“I talk to Bryson a lot. I talk to him everyday,” said senior linebacker Skai Moore, who missed all of last season with a neck injury.
“I give him advice, just to know what to prepare for, so he’ll be fine. He’s very positive.”
For redshirt sophomore Daniel Fennell, Allen-Williams’ season-ending injury creates an opportunity for more playing time. Fennell recorded his first-career sack on Saturday against Louisiana Tech, which was Allen-Williams’ first game out.
Offensively, the Gamecocks are without one, maybe two starters along the line. Senior center Alan Knott the mentality is “man down, man up.”
Junior tight end Hayden Hurst is among the offensive skill players who’s being asked to contribute more with the injury to redshirt junior wide receiver Deebo Samuel.
Redshirt freshman kicker Parker White and sophomore linebacker T.J. Brunson also stopped by the media room for interviews on Tuesday morning.
