Gamecocks' Spurrier unsure of players' return

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier says he's unsure if starters Jarriel King and Chris Culliver who did not play in a win over Southern Miss will be eligible against Georgia this week.
Spurrier said Sunday he had not heard anything new from the NCAA about the status of left tackle King and cornerback Culliver. Neither had been cleared by the NCAA and sat out the Gamecocks' 41-13 victory over Southern Miss.
Tight end Weslye Saunders has not practiced with the team since his Aug. 23 suspension and missed the Southern Miss game. Saunders has been a focus of the NCAA's inquiry for potential contact with agents in connection with a party in South Beach, Fla., this past spring.
Spurrier also said that starting linebacker Shaq Wilson would likely miss his second-straight game because of a hamstring injury.
