GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Florida quarterback Tyler Murphy probably will be a game-time decision against No. 11 South Carolina.

Offensive coordinator Brent Pease says Murphy's throwing shoulder is still sore and could keep him out against the Gamecocks on Saturday night.

Murphy sprained his right shoulder against LSU last month. He started the last three games, losses against Missouri, Georgia and Vanderbilt. Murphy said Monday he landed on his shoulder against the Commodores - he was sacked five times - and possibly made the injury worse.

He sat out practice Monday and Tuesday, and Pease says his availability will come down to "how well he can throw the ball with spin."

If Murphy can't play, redshirt freshman Skyler Mornhinweg would make his first career start.
