South Carolina tight end Rory Anderson tears triceps in scrimmage


According to The Post and Courier, South Carolina Gamecocks tight end Rory Anderson suffered a torn triceps during a scrimmage Saturday.

Head coach Steve Spurrier said Anderson sustained the injury while attempting to stiff-arm a defender: “He was stiff-arming a guy, and pulled it or something. Hopefully that can be repaired by the time August gets here.”

The 6-foot-5, 230-pound Anderson caught 17 passes during the 2013 season, accumulating 235 receiving yards. He hauled in a 52-yard touchdown catch during Saturday’s scrimmage before the injury occurred.

If the injury is severe, Anderson could miss the first few games of the 2014 season. However, as Ray Lewis proved a few years ago, overcoming a triceps tear in only a few months is doable with plenty of magic deer juice with plenty of hard work and a bit of luck.
