South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney limped off the field in the second quarter of the No. 10 Gamecocks’ 19-14 victory over Florida on Saturday night.
Clowney rolled around on the turf in pain as Gamecocks trainers rushed out to help. He got up after a few minutes and was helped to the sideline, limping with a right leg injury. Clowney was then looked at by team doctors on the sidelines.
Last year’s Southeastern Conference player of the year had just two sacks and 6 1/2 tackles for loss this season.
Clowney has had injury issues this season. He took himself out of last month’s game with Kentucky because of muscle strain around his ribs. The 6-foot-6, 274-pound junior is also dealing with bone spurs in his right foot, a condition he’s had since high school.
