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. "(It's) frustrating," Redd said. "(This is) nothing I asked for but it is what it is and I'm taking it as positively as I can." The USC senior, who led the team with 905 rushing yards and nine touchdowns in 2012, visited Andrews to undergo a "procedure" related to his injured left knee. Redd underwent surgery on his left knee last spring to repair a torn meniscus. The injury forced him to be shut down during spring drills and had him limited during training camp. He visited Dr. Andrews for a second opinion. "He had a great bedside presence," Redd said of Dr. Andrews. "(He's) an excellent doctor, obviously. He's a very positive guy. (There was) no negativity coming out of his mouth or his vibe or anything like that." Due to team policy, Redd was prohibited from saying anything further regarding the "procedure" that caused him to fly across the country to pay Dr. Andrews a visit. Redd and USC coach Lane Kiffin say they're hopeful the senior will be able to play in the home and Pac-12 opener against Washington State (0-1) on Saturday on FOX Sports 1. Redd was a non-participant in Tuesday's practice and was seen walking around with a sleeve on his left knee.
