Several key players who missed South Carolina’s loss at Texas A&M are expected to return in two weeks against Clemson. But the status of the likely offensive MVP, WR Bryan Edwards, is still in doubt.

“Bryan is dealing with a meniscus and we will hopefully get him back for Clemson,” coach Will Muschamp said on a media teleconference on Sunday night, according to Josh Kendall of The Athletic.

Otherwise, A.J. Turner should practice Wednesday, and Mon Denson, Tavien Feaster and OrTre Smith should be back for Clemson. Backup QB/WR Dakereon Joyner, who needed help leaving the field at Texas A&M after a helmet-to-helmet hit, is “OK” Muschamp said, but his status for Clemson is unknown.

In the next two weeks, much will be made about South Carolina’s five-game losing streak against Clemson, and Muschamp offered his first reaction to the game.

“This is the most important game we play,” he said. “Our guys understand that when you’re done playing at South Carolina you’re going to get asked, ‘How many times did you beat Clemson?’ We haven’t beaten them. Our guys understand that.”

Asked about the struggling offense and coordinator Bryan McClendon’s status for 2020, Muschamp said he would evaluate that after this season, as he always does.
