South Carolina star running back Marcus Lattimore appeared to suffer a serious right knee injury during Saturday's game against Tennessee.
Lattimore missed the last six games last season after tearing ligaments in his left knee. Saturday's injury hushed the crowd at Williams-Brice Stadium in Columbia, S.C., as players for both teams expressed their concern for one of the SEC's top backs.
"It looked severe on the field," South Carolina Coach Steve Spurrier said. "But we'll have to wait and see."
The junior back became an instant star as a freshman when he rushed for 1,149 yards and 17 touchdowns.
Lattimore is considered a top draft choice for next year's NFL draft.
