The Trojans will be without their leading rusher on Thursday night.
USC opens its 2013 season with a road trip to Hawaii on Thursday night. But it appears the Trojans won’t have one of their key offensive players in action.
According to the tweet below, USC running back Silas Redd won’t play in Thursday night’s game. Redd suffered a knee injury in the spring and isn’t quite 100 percent.
Although Redd is USC’s best running back, he won’t be missed against Hawaii. With Redd sidelined, sophomore Tre Madden and freshmen Justin Davis and Ty Isaac will pickup the slack on the ground.
Gonna hurt to not travel with my squad tomorrow but I know y'all gonna handle business in a few day! I'm working to get back 100% #FightOn!— Silas Redd (@Coast2CoastSii) August 27, 2013
