Gamecocks' Quarles doubtful for Florida
By Chris Low
South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier said Wednesday that sophomore defensive tackle Kelcy Quarles would likely face some sort of suspension after throwing a punch in the LSU game.
Spurrier didn’t specify when that suspension would come or how much time he would miss, but did say that Quarles was doubtful this week against Florida with a shoulder injury.
Replays showed Quarles punching LSU center P.J. Lonergan in the facemask during the Tigers’ first offensive possession of the game. There was no penalty called on the play.
“We do have plans to discipline Kelcy for that,” Spurrier said. “I guess you could call it a punch. I’ve seen bigger punches, but he did throw [one] at him. I don’t know if the LSU guy even knew he threw it, but I saw it. We don’t condone that.”
