South Carolina football is already without top defensive end D.J. Wonnum.
Saturday at Vanderbilt, the Gamecocks lost another defensive anchor.
Defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw had to be helped off the field with what looked like a right leg injury in the fourth quarter. He’d broken free on a pass rush and was brought down.
He didn’t appear to get rolled up on or landed on. He returned to the field, in uniform, with two minutes left in the game. His ankle looked heavily taped.
For the game, he had five tackles, a pair of sacks and a pair of forced fumbles.
