RJ Mickens ejected for targeting
Clemson safety R.J.

Josh Vann injury
South Carolina receiver Josh Vann left the game after a 34-yard reception on a Spencer Rattler pass. Vann needed help walking the sideline and was having trouble putting weight on his left leg after the catch. USC’s receivers came over to check on him. Clemson’s KJ Henry also came to wish Vann well.
Clemson injury update
All players listed on Clemson’s weekly depth chart released Monday are “expected to be available today,” per the school.
Clemson previously announced that starting wide receiver Beaux Collins (who was on Monday’s depth chart) would play against USC after missing the last two games with a shoulder injury.
Starting defensive tackle Bryan Bresee will also play after missing last week’s game with strep throat and fever, coach Dabo Swinney announced earlier in the week.
On the long-term injury front: starting left guard Marcus Tate is out for the season after injuring his knee against Miami, and safety Tyler Venables (hamstring) and wide/receiver Will Taylor (knee) remain off the depth chart.
MarShawn Lloyd travels
South Carolina tailbacks MarShawn Lloyd and Christian Beal-Smith — both battling injuries — made the trip for the Clemson game. Whether or not they play is to be determined.
Lloyd missed the last three games with a thigh contusion suffered in the Oct. 29 loss to Missouri. Beal-Smith missed the last two games with a foot injury that’s lingered all season. Lloyd leads the team with 556 rushing yard and nine touchdowns and has two other receiving scores.
South Carolina will suit up in black helmets, white jerseys and white pants.
