COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier says receiver Dion LeCorn spent a night in the hospital after bruising his kidney in practice.
Spurrier says LeCorn suffered the injury Tuesday and doctors put him in the hospital as a precaution.
The coach says he already planned to keep LeCorn out of Saturday's spring game. The hard-luck senior suffered a broken leg in last year's scrimmage.
LeCorn caught just four passes for 27 yards in an injury-filled 2009 season.
The Gamecocks practiced for the last time in the spring Wednesday.
