COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- South Carolina defensive coordinator Lorenzo Ward says defensive ends Jadeveon Clowney and Chaz Sutton will be day to day because of foot injuries for the rest of the season, but neither is expected to miss games.

Clowney is dealing with bone spurs in his right foot, a continuing problem dating to high school. Sutton has had a foot injury since preseason camp.

Ward said Tuesday the two likely will wear walking boots to protect the injuries when unable to practice.

The 12th-ranked Gamecocks (2-1) are off Saturday. Their next game is Sept. 28 at UCF.

Clowney has two sacks and 10 tackles. Sutton has 1 1/2 sacks and 11 tackles this season.
