Gamecocks’ Doty (ankle) questionable for opener


South Carolina beginning quarterback Luke Doty suffered a sprained ankle and is questionable to play within the Gamecocks’ season opener in opposition to Eastern Illinois on Sept. 4.

Doty, a sophomore, began the ultimate two video games for South Carolina final season, throwing a mixed two touchdowns and two interceptions in losses to Georgia and Kentucky.

South Carolina first-year coach Shane Beamer named Doty the starter within the spring.

Beamer stated the harm to Doty wasn’t as severe as first thought and isn’t thought-about season-ending.

“We are going to re-evaluate him right here in a pair weeks,” Beamer advised reporters on Saturday. “Luke is in nice spirits and optimistic he’ll be capable to play within the first recreation. If not, will probably be quickly after that.”

With Doty sidelined in the meanwhile, South Carolina will flip to both Colten Gauthier or Jason Brown at quarterback.
