South Carolina DE Clowney, RB Davis rest

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - No. 13 South Carolina opted to rest defensive end Jadeveon Clowney and running back Mike Davis on Tuesday.

The Gamecocks (7-2, 5-2 Southeastern Conference) have Saturday off and don't play again until Nov. 16 at home against Florida.

Clowney is considered the one of the top prospects for the NFL draft. He's been dealing with several injuries throughout the season, including bone spurs in his right foot and a muscle strain near his rib cage.

Davis leads the SEC with 1,058 yards rushing. He is the first Gamecocks tailback to surpass the 1,000-yard mark since Marcus Lattimore gained 1,197 yards in 2010.

Davis hurt his right leg in South Carolina's 27-24, double-overtime win at Missouri two games ago.

Both are expected to be ready for Florida.
