Shaw back at practice for No. 14 South Carolina

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina quarterback Connor Shaw was back at practice Wednesday after missing time earlier this week because of a virus.

Quarterbacks coach G.A. Mangus said Shaw didn't take all the snaps, but looked healthy and was moving well. Mangus said he was prepping Shaw to start for the 14th-ranked Gamecocks (6-2, 4-2 Southeastern Conference) against Mississippi State (4-3, 1-2) Saturday.

Shaw did not start last Saturday night at No. 10 Missouri as he dealt with a knee sprain and the virus. However, he came in midway through the third quarter and threw three touchdown passes as South Carolina rallied from 17-points down to win 27-24 in double overtime.

Shaw missed practice Monday and Tuesday with the illness. He's passed for 1,508 yards with 14 touchdowns and one interception.

    South Carolina left Williams-Brice Stadium with a win over Wofford but it was a result elsewhere that earned it a place in the SEC standings it rarely sees.
