Everyone knows keeping Kedon Slovis healthy will be the challenge this season for USC.
Even Clay Helton acknowledged it Wednesday.
“We’re a 55-to-60-percent pass team,” Helton said. “Pass protection is going to be key in that and being able to keep Kedon upright. He’s had two injuries over the past two years. As long as he’s standing upright and healthy, we’re in a good situation.”
That’s a low bar for any head coach: Keeping the QB “upright.”
It’s sort of like the standard for Helton at USC. Keep him upright on the sideline and that’s about all you are going to get out of him.
- Wide receiver Jake Smith, who transferred from Texas, is out for the season because of a foot injury. So USC has lost Bru McCoy and Smith before the season started. The question is will USC miss them?
- One thing if you follow training camp. Do you ever hear of a wide receiver having a “bad” camp? You usually only hear about catches made in practice. A lot of times those catches might be against inferior (or much smaller) defensive backs. Or a blown coverage. So it’s pretty easy to get compliments during camp.
The defensive backs aren’t too close to the wide receiver on this play:https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js
