Cody Gibson has torn meniscus

South Carolina right tackle Cody Gibson needs surgery to repair a torn meniscus and will miss the remainder of the Gamecocks' spring practices.

South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier confirmed Gibson's injury Thursday but said the redshirt junior is expected to return for summer workouts.

The 6-foot-7, 284-pound Gibson has made six career starts, including two last season. He appeared in nine games last season for the Gamecocks.
