South Carolina football: Injury updates for Zack Bailey, Deebo Samuel and others

COLUMBIA, S.C. – South Carolina football coach Will Muschamp said right tackle Zack Bailey, who’s missed the last two games with an ankle injury, is day-to-day.

Bailey, a junior, exited late in the Kentucky game with an ankle injury. Starting right guard Cory Helms and swing tackle Malik Young, both of whom are dealing with lower leg injuries, are also questionable for the Arkansas game.

“I think Zack’s got the best opportunity to play,” Muschamp said, “And I’ll probably know more Wednesday or Thursday on him, but he’s probably further [along] from helping us than the other two guys are, at this time.”

If Bailey and Young are both out on Saturday, then senior D.J. Park, who replaced Young at Texas A&M, will get the starting nod at right tackle. Junior Blake Camper could also see some work against the Razorbacks.

Junior wide receiver Deebo Samuel “is doing well” with his surgically repaired leg.

“He’s got the cast off. He’s in a walking boot right now. In there doing the bone stimulation and all of those exercises and things,” Muschamp said, “But I think he’s coming along well.”

The timeline for his return, Muschamp added, is to be determined.

“We’re still weeks away from that,” he said. “I just told [team doctors], if we get close, y’all let me know something.”

Redshirt junior wide receiver Terry Googer, who exited Kyle Field on a stretcher, is also day-to-day.
