South Carolina's Clowney to start on Sat.

COLUMBIA, S.C. -- South Carolina All-American Jadeveon Clowney will start Saturday when the 14th-ranked Gamecocks travel to Arkansas.

Gamecocks defensive coordinator Lorenzo Ward said Thursday that Clowney will start after successfully finishing a second consecutive day of practice after missing workouts earlier in the week with a strained muscle near his ribcage.

Clowney pulled himself out of last Saturday night's game against Kentucky a short time before kickoff, which upset South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier. That led to questions about whether Clowney, a 6-foot-6, 274-pound lineman, was fully committed to the Gamecocks or if he was protecting himself for next spring's NFL draft where he's considered a top prospect.

Ward talked with trainer Clint Haggard who says Clowney's received treatment on his injury several times. Ward says Clowney's doing all he can to play.
