Lincoln Riley said Caleb Williams suffered “a significant hamstring injury” and said USC would monitor his progress before the Cotton Bowl.
The official line is USC will determine if he can play. But Williams flexed his power in the Pac-12 title game by refusing to come out of the game when he was less than 50 percent. So we’ll see.
There isn’t much point playing Williams if he is not fully recovered or can aggravate the injury.
At the very least, Miller Moss will get a lot of bowl-practice experience.
