LOS ANGELES -- Instead of watching USC's season opener in Los Angeles as previously suspected, USC tailback Silas Redd revealed he was actually in Pensacola, Fla. visiting Dr. James Andrews. USC's young group of tailbacks played well by all accounts and Redd liked what he saw in last Thursday night's 30-13 win over Hawaii. "I was extremely proud," Redd said. "We almost had two 100-yard rushers back there and that's always a great thing. We had a little adversity with the fumble but (Justin Davis) bounced back and scored that touchdown. "I said 'leave it out there.' You don't get opportunities like this all of the time. You play running back at USC. That's a big deal." What he didn't like was having to watch his teammates' success in Florida following a procedure with the renowned Dr. James Andrews instead of being in Hawaii contributing to his team's success.

USC Football: Silas Redd Injury Update

Going into the season, the USC Trojans had a lot of depth at the running back position, led by senior Silas Redd. However, Redd was having issues with his knee. He suffered a meniscus tear during spring practice and hasn’t been 100% since. Nevertheless, Redd returned to practice on August 17th hoping to be ready for the team’s first game against Hawaii. That didn’t happen....

USC's Shaw is often seen and not heard

LOS ANGELES --Josh Shaw approached his locker inside the McKay Center earlier this week and found a pleasant surprise. His No. 26 jersey was replaced with No. 6. Shaw requested the single digit number last spring but was turned aside and told number changes are only done in the fall. The supply is far less than the demand of single digit numbers so they're handed out judiciously...

Lane Kiffin keeping USC starting QB a mystery

Kiffin staying coy about No. 25 USC's starting QB

Cody Kessler, Max Wittek and coach Lane Kiffin all know who's starting at quarterback for No. 25 Southern California on Saturday night.

Washington St.-Southern Cal Preview

If Silas Redd makes his season debut and Marqise Lee can clean up a few mistakes, it might be easier for Southern California to survive another game until a clear No. 1 quarterback emerges.

Lane Kiffin Won’t Tell USC Players Who Will Start at QB

Lane Kiffin is not known for being conventional, or sane for that matter. Considering he let the air out of balls to stop Oregon, had players switch jerseys, and randomly goes for two during games we shouldn’t be surprised that he refuses to tell his players who the starting QB will be for the Trojans: “I don’t address them that way, just like I don’t address who starts...
