South Carolina's Connor Shaw will start against Kentucky
The original diagnosis on South Carolina QB Connor Shaw was that he'd miss two to three weeks with a shoulder injury.
After South Carolina quarterback Connor Shaw originally suffered an injury to his throwing shoulder against Central Florida last week, the original diagnosis from his coach was that he'd miss two to three weeks of action.
Well it turns out that Steve Spurrier is a better coach than he is a doctor.
Apparently, Shaw won't even miss a game as Spurrier announced that Shaw would start against Kentucky on Saturday. Spurrier said that Shaw was throwing passes during practice on Monday and that he's gotten better throughout the week.
Shaw's return is a good thing for the Gamecocks, because even though Dylan Thompson has plenty of experience and helped lead South Carolina to a come-from-behind win against UCF, Shaw has completed 49 of his 76 passes for 665 yards and six touchdowns without an interception. He's currently fourth in the SEC in passing efficency at 164.02 (ranked No. 19 in the country) and has also rushed for 232 yards.
It was Shaw's rushing ability that also led to his injury. Shaw took off on a run up the middle in the first quarter on Saturday and suffered the shoulder injury after taking a hit.
