Jackie Bradley Jr. will be missing the next 4-8 weeks with a broken hand he suffered in practice. He was a consensus Freshman All-American last season for the Gamecocks after hitting 349 (89-for-255) with 11 HR and 46 RBI. This injury should not affect the Gamecocks SEC title chances as eight weeks from now, they will open SEC play against Tennessee.
