Thursday’s practice offered up a glimpse into the most up-to-date injury situation ahead of the Gamecocks’ game against Missouri on Saturday. 

Receiver Deebo Samuel was held out of practice again. He’s been plagued by a hamstring issue for virtually the entire season. Due to the trickiness of the actual injury, a minor tweak could set anyone back for weeks. As such, freshman D.J. Neal will likely start in his place. Neal has registered one catch on the season for 15 yards. 

Corner Chris Lammons will likely suit up. The sophomore had been battling a knee injury, and will be a welcomed sight for a secondary plagued by some consistency issues early in 2015.
