The Trojans held their second scrimmage of Spring Camp on Saturday, as well as the last practice before the team has a week off for Spring Break. It was a spirited scrimmage for the Trojans, though a number of athletes sat out with injury.
Here are the quick hits from Saturday’s scrimmage:
Cody Kessler went 13-19 for 161 yards, including a 74-yd TD to WR Nelson Agholor, while Max Browne went 6-9 for 69 yards.
Buck Allen had 11 carries for 65 yds, and scored a touchdown.
Head coach Lane Kiffin estimated that 10 Trojans missed drills and/or the scrimmage today because of injury.
TE Xavier Grimble suffered a broken rib, and it is not clear whether he will be able to participate in the rest of spring practice.
RB Silas Redd, who suffered knee injury Thursday, will have surgery Tuesday, Kiffin said. He has a torn meniscus, but should be ready for fall. Max Wittek and Su’a Cravens did not practice either.
Kiffin hinted that Marcus Martin, not Max Tuerk, might get the bulk of reps at center going forward.
WR Darreus Rogers shined in the scrimmage, and has been one of the stars of spring camp through the first two weeks. He’s consistant, and could really make a push to get himself near the top of the wide receiver rotation come the fall.
After Spring Break, the Trojans will hold their practice on Tues., March 26 at 4 p.m., and it will be open to the public.
