Porter Gustin Update

Clay Helton said Porter Gustin will have surgery tomorrow to repair a slightly torn meniscus and face a 2-4 week recovery.

Ajene Harris was out three weeks and Rasheem Green two following similar operations, Helton said.

With UNLV the first game, it doesn’t really matter if Gustin is back for that.

  2. A poster over on 247’s pay boards commented that after seeing Porter in person, that it looked to him that Porter may not have the bone density and structure to handle all that muscle mass, especially when playing a high impact sport.

    1. It’s possible Porter has a bone density problem —it’s also possible that he’s always getting hurt cuz (1) he plays with total & insane abandon (which is a pleasure to watch up until he gets his teeth knocked out or breaks something) and/or (2) he isn’t being properly attended to by USC’s conditioning program. Why do I think that Porter will be another in a long line of often injured USC player who plays in the NFL for 10 years without ever getting hurt again?
