South Carolina will be without starting quarterback Jake Bently for several weeks after he suffered a foot injury in the season-opening loss to North Carolina. Per CBS Sports:

South Carolina lost 24-20 to North Carolina on Saturday, and now has lost its starting quarterback. Gamecocks coach Will Muschamp confirmed to reporters on Tuesday that senior quarterback Jake Bentley is out "for an extended period of time" with a foot injury. Muschamp added that Bentley could be out either 6-8 weeks if the injury does not require surgery; if it does, however, he will miss the remainder of the season. 247Sports previously reported that Bentley had injured his foot.

True freshman Ryan Hilinski is expected to start on Saturday in the Gamecocks' home opener vs. Charleston Southern. The Post and Courier also confirmed the news of Bentley's injury timetable and Hilinski expected to step in.
