USC cornerback Greg Johnson, who placed his name in the NCAA transfer portal, is dressed and at Howard Jones Field for today’s practice. What he can do is limited because he is still injured.
I reported yesterday Johnson met with Clay Helton and was leaning toward returning to the team.
UPDATED: Johnson participated in the entire practice so his shoulder injury is apparently OK.
