USC did not run a two-minute drill yesterday because of a shortage of offensive tackles.
It’s worth mentioing because starting right tackle Chuma Edoga has had a hip issue during training camp. Edoga’s had injury issues in the past and also an up-and-down relationship with the coaches. So it’s not a total surprise he wasn’t available.
But Austin Jackson (ankle) and Clayton Bradley (back), the main left tackles, are battling injuries but should be OK fo the UNLV game. Not to mention Andrew Vorhees, who was inconsistent last season but started at guard.
You might sense a pattern here as I stress the performance was already less-than-stellar with some of these players and when you throw in injuries, it only magnifies the problem. Now you can also see why USC took junior-college transfer Bernard Schirmer. It needs him for depth.
