South Carolina squad defensive end Justin Henderson suffered a concussion Tuesday and has been ruled out for Saturday’s game. Henderson is from Bamberg-Erhardt High, and is committed to Kentucky.
He is being replaced by Midland Valley DL Bryan Hadden.
Players cannot be replaced after Tuesday, which means if North Carolina players keep injuring themselves at their current pace, the game may have to be seven-on-seven.
Despite South Carolina’s loss of Henderson and James Island offensive lineman Chad Hamilton (sprained ankle), the Sandlappers are in much better shape.
