Gamecocks tight end injured during Saturday scrimmage

COLUMBIA, SC (FOX Carolina) -

University of South Carolina sports officials said tight end Rory "Busta" Anderson was hurt Saturday during the Gamecocks' second spring scrimmage.

During the practice game at Williams-Brice Stadium in Columbia, the offense scored eight times, including five touchdowns, and had no turnovers during the 69-play session, according to a media release.

"I thought we had some pretty good work here today, a pretty good practice," head coach Steve Spurrier said. "Our defense seemed like it had the best of the offense early and then the offense got together and scored some touchdowns. All the guys did well."

Sports officials said Anderson suffered a tricep injury, which was the only notable injury of the game.

"I think 'Busta' Anderson may have torn his triceps stiff-arming a guy," Spurrier said. "Hopefully that can be repaired by the time August gets here.

Spurrier said that Anderson is finished for the spring.

Doctors are working to determine if Anderson's injury will require surgery.

The Gamecocks have one week of practice remaining before wrapping up the spring training season with the annual Garnet & Black Spring Game on Saturday, April 12.
