Connor Shaw still dealing with virus issue


South Carolina senior quarterback Connor Shaw is once against dealing with health problems this week.

Shaw did not attend Tuesday night's practice because he's dealing with a stomach bug.

Shaw was also battling the virus Saturday night when the Gamecocks pulled off that dramatic win against Missouri. He was also dealing with a sprained left knee suffered the week before against Tennessee.

Shaw entered the Missouri game in the third quarter and led Carolina to a double overtime victory.

Coach Steve Spurrier doesn't know about Shaw's availability for this weekend's game against Mississippi State.

"Shaw still has a virus. I don't know what are trainers are calling it, but he's sick. He's sick, not going to practice today, he didn't practice last night. But if he's unable to go, Dylan [Thompson] will be ready," said Spurrier.

The Gamecocks come back home to Williams-Brice Stadium on Saturday to play the Mississippi State Bulldogs. Kickoff is at 12:21 p.m.
