Gamecocks Backup RB Eric Baker Out with Serious Knee Injury

Bad news out of the Gamecocks practice yesterday, reserve running back Eric Baker hurt his knee in practice Thursday and it looks like he will need surgery.  Rumored to be a ACL issue or at very least significant ligament damage.  Spurrier seems to think surgery will be required and that would likely cost Baker his 2010 season.

LOHD has always been a big fan of Mr. Baker - here & here - he just got buried in the depth chart.  He was rumored to be thinking about a transfer and if that is true this certainly does not help that issue.  Eric is a sophomore and does have a redshirt year available.  LOHD hopes he bounces back very soon!
