The South Carolina Gamecocks are a bit short at the tight end position this fall camp, as starter Kiel Pollard is working his way through a shoulder issue.

On Monday, they lost another tight end, this one for a longer period of time, it seems.

After practice on Monday, coach Will Muschamp said backup TE Evan Hinson would miss 6-8 weeks due to an irregular heartbeat:

Hinson is now dedicated to football after splitting time between basketball and football the past couple of years.

This is a scary situation, but as David Cloninger notes above, it is a procedure that another Gamecock — DL Taylor Stallworth — dealt with and ended up being OK.
