COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Jadeveon Clowney's happy to get a rest with No. 12 South Carolina starting a week off - both for his aching right foot and from the spotlight that follows him around.

The Gamecocks All-American defensive end wears a walking boot to protect a recurrence of bone spurs in his foot, an injury he's dealt with since high school. Clowney's had all aspects of his game analyzed this season and has been criticized for his conditioning even though opponents have been running away from whatever side the 6-foot-6, 274-pound lineman lines up on.

Clowney is ready for a week without a game and thinks he'll be able to rest his foot enough so the pain won't bother him when the Gamecocks (2-1) travel to UCF (3-0) on Sept. 28.
