Verilog basics - isolating a bit in a sum

Inside an always statement: 

 

c <= a + b; 

s <= c[7]; 

 

What if I wanted to do: 

s <= (a+b)[7]; 

 

It does not work as such (compiler error), but it'd be convenient in that I do not want to store the result in a register and waste a clock cycle. 

 

Is there a way to do something like this? 

 

Thanks.

You can simply define s as a wire and use an assign statement
