South Carolina's Brandon Wilds leaves game with injury


The offensive options are getting thin for South Carolina after Wilds left the game after taking a shot to the head.

UPDATE: Wilds is done for the day.

South Carolina's offense was already in rough shape without quarterback Connor Shaw, but now the Gamecocks will have to work without running back Brandon Wilds. Wilds took a knee to the helmet from a UCF defender on a play where he also fumbled, but he left the field to go to the locker room with his arm in a sling. It's unclear whether he'll return to action today. Take a look:

Wilds, a sophomore from Blythewood (S.C.), is the Gamecocks' third leading rusher this year with 109 yards on 25 carries and a touchdown through the first three games. They're already without their second leading rusher in Shaw, and will probably lean heavily on Mike Davis to carry the load for them offensively in the second half.

South Carolina still trails UCF 10-7 in the third quarter.
