COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- South Carolina starting left tackle
Jarriel King has been taken to the hospital after experiencing what
coach Steve Spurrier called a heart flutter.

Athletics officials say King was lifting weights Tuesday morning
when he had the problem. He is expected to recover fully and only
miss a day of practice. Spurrier says King normally takes medicine for the problem. He didn't know if the sophomore forgot to take it or had an adverse reaction. King has started two of South Carolina's four games in 2008.
