COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Injured quarterback Connor Shaw was back at practice Wednesday for No. 9 South Carolina.

Shaw sustained a deep bone bruise in his throwing shoulder in last Thursday night's 17-13 victory at Vanderbilt. He hadn't practiced since the game and coach Steve Spurrier said his status for Saturday's home opener against East Carolina (1-0) was wait-and-see.

However, Shaw appeared calm and in no pain as he left the team's practice fields. He said he felt OK and threw passes at the workout. Shaw was not made available for questions.

Shaw came back in after his injury and led South Carolina (1-0) on a fourth-quarter touchdown drive that put the Gamecocks ahead for good. Shaw finished with 92 yards rushing. He was also 7-of-11 passing for 67 yards.
