COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) Steve Spurrier says 1,000-yard rusher Mike Davis hasn't practiced this week and might not be ready when the ninth-ranked Gamecocks open the season against No. 21 Texas A&M in a week.
The teams play at Williams-Brice Stadium next Thursday night. Davis has been slowed by several injuries during camp, most recently a rib injury suffered last Saturday.
Davis rushed for 1,183 yards last season, the fourth best single-season total in school history. Davis joked about his status Thursday on Twitter, ''Y''all really think I'm going to miss the first game?'' followed by several grinning emoticons.
Davis was a second-team all-Southeastern Conference preseason selection.
