COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- Former South Carolina running back Kenny Miles is expected to be sent home from the hospital today.

Authorities say Miles was shot during a robbery in the parking lot of a business park in suburban Columbia Monday.

Miles sustained a soft tissue injury from a gunshot wound in his forearm, according to USC team physician. There were no additional injuries and his injury is not considered life threatening.

Richland County Sheriff's spokesman Curtis Wilson said Miles was shot in the upper body around 1 p.m. in the lot just off Interstate 26 near Irmo.

Wilson says Miles was able to give investigators a description of the person who shot him, but no arrests have been made and authorities haven't determined why the suspect tried to rob Miles.

Miles spent most of his career with the Gamecocks backing up Marcus Lattimore. He ran for 1,341 yards on 315 carries. Miles graduated in 2012 with a degree in criminal justice.
