Capers, Faison out for Gamecocks



COLUMBIA, S.C. -- Sprained ankles have left quite a hole in South Carolina's defense.

Starting linebacker Rashad Faison and reserve defensive end Jason Capers are both out of Saturday's game with Louisiana State after spraining their left ankles against Kentucky, athletic spokesman Kerry Tharp says.

Gamecock reserve defensive end Randy Jackson also is questionable with a left ankle sprain.
