Gators may face South Carolina without star RB Marcus Lattimore



 South Carolina RB Marcus Lattimore is questionable for Saturday's game against Florida, coach Steve Spurrier said. 

Lattimore suffered a bruised bone in his hip area, and did not practice on Wednesday. Spurrier said "there's probably a good chance" Kenny Miles will start instead of Lattimore. Mike Davis is also getting reps for the Gamecocks in practice this week. 

Lattimore has 129 carries this year, Miles 27 and Davis 13.

If Lattimore can't go, or is limited, that's a huge blow to the Gamecocks' offense - and a break for Florida. Two years ago, Lattimore rushed for 212 yards and three TD's vs. the Gators.
