USC Spring Camp: 03/16 Scrimmage Notes

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

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.
