South Carolina WR Damiere Byrd will miss the Capital One Bowl vs No.19 Wisconsin after he injured his knee at practice this week.

Per ESPN...

The school said Friday that Byrd would have arthroscopic surgery in a day or two. The Gamecocks (10-2) will face No. 19 Wisconsin (9-3) in Orlando, Fla., on New Year's Day.

The 5-foot-9 Byrd is from Sicklerville, N.J. He had 33 catches for 575 yards and four touchdowns this fall, and his 76-yard touchdown catch at Tennessee on Oct. 19 was the Gamecocks' longest scoring pass of the year.

Byrd is among South Carolina's fastest players and competes in sprint events for the Gamecocks' track team.
