COLUMBIA, SC (AP) - South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier says he'll discipline defensive tackle Kelcy Quarles for punching a player at LSU last week.

Spurrier said Wednesday the discipline would probably involve missing game time. A video on YouTube shows Quarles punching LSU center P.J. Lonergan in the facemask after a first-quarter play in the Tigers' 23-21 victory.

Spurrier says he's seen much harder punches during games than the one Quarles threw. Still, Spurrier says he does not condone what Quarles did.

Quarles has started all seven games this year and has 30 tackles and 2 ½ sacks. He's dealing with a shoulder injury and Spurrier said the sophomore defensive lineman may not be physically able to play Saturday when the ninth-ranked Gamecocks (6-1, 4-1 Southeastern Conference) play at No. 3 Florida (6-0, 5-0).
