COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Steve Spurrier says 1,000-yard rusher Mike Davis hasn't practiced this week and might not be ready when the ninth-ranked Gamecocks open the season against No. 21 Texas A&M in a week.

The teams play at Williams-Brice Stadium next Thursday night. Davis has been slowed by several injuries during camp, most recently a rib injury suffered last Saturday.

Davis rushed for 1,183 yards last season, the fourth best single-season total in school history. Davis joked about his status Thursday on Twitter, "Y''all really think I'm going to miss the first game?" followed by several grinning emoticons.

Davis was a second-team all-Southeastern Conference preseason selection.

If Davis is sidelined, Spurrier said the Gamecocks would be good relying on backups Brandon Wilds, Shon Carson and David Williams.
