Carolina without starting tight end on Saturday

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier says
starting tight end Weslye Saunders will miss Saturday's game
against Kentucky because of an ankle injury.
Saunders is the 25th-ranked Gamecocks third-leading receiver
with 14 catches for 156 yards this season. Spurrier says Saunders,
a 6-foot-5 junior, aggravated the ankle injury this week.
Spurrier says freshman Justice Cunningham will get his first
start in place of Saunders. Cunningham has played in all five games
this season. He caught his only pass in last week's 38-14 victory
over South Carolina State.
