Marcus Lattimore suffers nasty dislocation of leg

Marcus Lattimore was injured in Saturday’s win against Tennessee. The South Carolina running back was running to the left side of the field when he was hit by Tennessee defensive back Eric Gordon. Lattimore’s leg then collapsed.

“It looked severe on the field,” South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier said during his halftime interview with ESPN. “Hopefully it’s not as severe as we thought.”

Players from both teams came onto the field to show support for Lattimore. He was carted off the field with a towel on his head.

ESPN said later that Lattimore and his mother embraced for about five minutes as he came off the field, and both were crying.

Lattimore suffered an ACL tear last season and had been dealing with a hip injury this season. He appeared in just five plays in last weeks loss to Florida.
