South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier says quarterback Connor Shaw won’t need surgery for his sprained left knee.

But Shaw is unlikely to play when the 20th-ranked Gamecocks travel to No. 5 Missouri this weekend.

Spurrier said Sunday that Shaw had on a knee brace and was walking some a day after injuring the knee in a 23-21 loss at Tennessee. However, Spurrier adds Shaw wouldn’t practice for two to three days

NOTRE DAME: Coach Brian Kelly sounded hopeful quarterback Tommy Rees will be ready to play Saturday against struggling Air Force after sustaining a neck injury against Southern Califorina.

“He’s feeling better today. Still a little sore, but it will be a day-to-day situation,” Kelly said Sunday.

Kelly said he expects Rees to practice Tuesday.

MISSISSIPPI: Tight end Evan Engram will have season-ending surgery on his left ankle.

The injury – which the school called a high ankle sprain – occurred in the second half of the upset win over Louisiana State.

OBITUARY: Don James, the longtime University of Washington football coach who led the Huskies to a share of the national championship in 1991, died Sunday. He was 80.

The university said James died at his home from the effects of pancreatic cancer.

James was 178-76-3 as a head coach at Kent State and Washington, counting three forfeit victories with the Huskies. After going 25-19-1 in four seasons at Kent State, he was 153-57-2 at Washington from 1975-92 and led the school to a six-pack of Rose Bowl appearances.
