Remember how wide receiver Tyler Vaughns did not play in the first quarter against Iowa?
It immediately led to speculation Vaughns was either suspended or injured. He eventually played and caught six passes for 54 yards.
Well, a source tells me Vaughns had a back injury that kept him out for the first quarter. So at least we know it wasn’t a disciplinary matter.
The bigger question now is whether Vaughns goes pro?
- With the Rams letting defensive coordinator Wade Phillips go, it could mean one of two things for USC: Joe Barry could either be looking for a job if a new defensive coordinator does not want him or Barry could replace Phillips.
- Does it matter that Tua Tagovailoa entered the NFL draft from USC’s perspective? His replacement, Mac Jones, looked pretty capable so I would say no. And if Bryce Young starts, I don’t think it matters that much either.
