South Carolina's Connor Shaw likely to miss Missouri game

 

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.
