Safety D.J. Swearinger suffers concussion

COLUMBIA, S.C. -- South Carolina sophomore safety D.J. Swearinger suffered a concussion and won't return for Thursday night's game.

Swearinger had been one of the Gamecocks' most promising young defensive players in the preseason. Depending on the seriousness of the concussion, he could be iffy for the Georgia game next week.

The Gamecocks were already playing without starting cornerback Chris Culliver, who was held out because of an NCAA matter.
