Gamecock QB Luke Doty suffers injury in Friday practice
South Carolina sophomore quarterback Luke Doty injured his foot during a practice Friday afternoon, according to a source close to the team.
Doty suffered a sprain after getting inadvertently stepped on late in practice Friday. Xrays, MRI and cat scan will be evaluated by outside team consultants.
“Luke’s in great spirits and is optimistic he’ll be able to play in the first game,” Beamer said. “But if he’s not, it’ll be shortly after that.”
Doty played in eight games, making a pair of starts during the 2020 season and completed close to 61-percent of his passes. He was listed as the Gamecocks’ starting quarterback entering fall camp.
Should Doty miss playing time, we assume Jason Brown would be moved to the starting role. He’s been taking the bulk of the second-team snaps during fall camp.
