Silas Redd will miss second straight game for USC


USC takes on Washington State tonight in a Pac 12 opener, but the Trojans will once again be without running back Silas Redd. The school announced via Twitter prior to kickoff Redd, defensive back Anthony Brown and defensive lineman JR Tavai will sit out of tonight’s game.

Redd did not travel with the team last week when USC opened the season in Hawaii due to a lingering knee injury. Instead, Redd was sent for an appointment with Dr. James Andrews and his status was uncertain for week two, although Lane Kiffin was hopeful he would be available.

Brown was not expected to play this weekend after wearing a knee brace earlier in the week. Tavai has also been rehabbing for the Trojans.
