South Carolina receiver Samuel has surgery on injured leg

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) South Carolina receiver Deebo Samuel had surgery on his fractured left leg Sunday and Gamecocks coach Will Muschamp said the Southeastern Conference’s touchdowns leader will miss an extended period of time.

Muschamp said Saturday night after a 23-13 loss to Kentucky that Samuel’s leg was broken and he would miss the rest of the season. On Sunday, Muschamp said that Samuel’s surgery went well and he’ll wait and see how the recovery goes.

Samuel and his mother went on Twitter shortly after the game that junior would only miss five or six weeks and return toward the end of the season.

Samuel got his sixth TD of the season on a 68-yard catch. He leads the SEC and is tied for second nationally.
