The University of South Carolina has confirmed that Preseason All-American candidate, Jasper Brinkley, is out for the year after suffering a knee injury in the first quarter fo Saturday's loss at LSU. The University says it is a knee sprain but souces close to the Brinkley family say a ligament in the knee is torn. The linebacker is scheduled to undergo surgery and is expected to miss the rest of the season. There is a possibility that the University could apply for a medical redshirt making the senior eligible for next season. The former Thomson Bulldog could also decide to enter the NFL draft in April.
