Oct. 03, 2019
Good news for Gamecock defensive lineman Keir Thomas. The senior has missed the entire Gamecocks season to date after an ankle infection following surgery. Will Muschamp suggested he might redshirt, but his recent work has given some reason for optimism.
Gamecocks defensive coordinator Travaris Robinson said filling in on Will Muschamp’s weekly call-in show. “This past week, his spirit has been real high. He’s coming back now, so now they’ve got him back running around. He’s taken all the bandages off, and all that stuff, so the infection is pretty much leaving his body.” So the hope now is to have him back soon. Robinson followed up by saying. “Hopefully we can get him back for the stretch run. He would be a tremendous help for our defense because of the leadership ability and how he guys gravitate toward him.If Thomas is out the next four games after the bye, he could come back and still be able to return in 2020.
Keir Thomas an Miami recruit . He has played tackle and the end position he has started 12 games in 2018. He also was seventh on the team with 44 tackles, plus 4 1/2 for loss and 1 1/2 sacks. Robinson said. “He’ll work a little bit in this bye week and we’ll see where he progresses,”
