For those wondering if Connor Shaw will be under center Saturday for South Carolina, you’ll have to wait a couple of days before knowing with any degree of certainty.
The quarterback suffered a shoulder injury in last Thursday’s four-point win over Vanderbilt. Head coach Steve Spurrier said Sunday that, even three days removed from the injury, his starter was having “trouble lifting his arm right now.”
In an update during Spurrier’s teleconference Wednesday, the Ol’ Ball Coach said Shaw will try to throw today, but will likely be a game-time decision as to whether he can take the field vs. East Carolina Saturday.
Even if Shaw doesn’t throw Thursday, Spurrier added, he could still start the nonconference game. If Shaw is unable to go, redshirt sophomore Dylan Thompson would likely get the nod as the starter.
Due in large part to the injury, Shaw was limited to 67 yards passing in the season-opening win, although he did add 92 yards on the ground.
