08:20 AM ET 04.10 | The Gamecocks return to the practice field on Thursday and Friday before Saturday's spring finale likely without their defensive leader. [Virtually] of assured of not getting any action on Saturday is junior All-American defensive end Jadeveon Clowney. He did not take part in last weekend's scrimmage and did not practice on Tuesday due to an injury sustained when he collided with defensive tackle J. T. Surratt. He suffered a neck sprain. "His neck and back are still stiff," said [defensive coordinator Lorenzo Ward]. "Whether he goes another snap (this spring), I don't care." ... Saturday's spring game will be broadcast on ESPN3 with Anish Shroff providing the play-by-play.

JC got all his $$$$ upfront...

He could be getting some residual income, performance-bonus type stuff. I wouldn't be surprised.

Ward compared him to Derrick Thomas, who Ward played with at Alabama. Supposed to be very comparable, but I doubt Clowney will break any of DT's college records.

Been meaning to ask about Garnett. Know he only shows 3*, but heard he should be higher.

Probably closer to the truth than we want to admit.
