Nineteen players sat out of practice today at USC due to injuries.
By the official roster, the Trojans only list 92 total players.
Lane Kiffin stated following practice, “We’ve have had a very physical camp. Obviously, that at times will take its toll. We were down 19 guys today that were unable to practice due to injuries. So we got to make sure at the same time that we’re not out here too long because that will take its toll because as 19 guys go out, what we need to remember is that increased increases everybody’s reps when it goes offense, defense, and special teams because obviously you’re losing guys and lose the ability to rotate as much. I still thought it was a good practice. They’re still coming out with a good attitude even though we’re in the grind of things right now.”
Kiffin later said that most of the guys are offensive skill position players, which hasn’t helped the offense find their identity.
On the bright side, USC released an awesome video today.
