RB Silas Redd hoping to return for No. 25 USC



LOS ANGELES (AP) — Tailback Silas Redd hopes to make his season debut on Saturday for No. 25 Southern California after getting more repairs done on his left knee last week.

Redd didn’t practice with the Trojans on Tuesday night, but is still optimistic he could play against Washington State.

The Penn State transfer missed most of spring ball and training camp after tearing his meniscus early in spring practice.

USC beat Hawaii 30-13 last week in its season opener. Redd watched the game from Pensacola, Fla., after he had a “minor” procedure done on his knee by Dr. James Andrews.

Redd led the Trojans last season with 905 yards rushing and nine TDs after transferring shortly before training camp.

Tre Madden rushed for 109 yards against Hawaii, and 17-year-old Justin Davis added 74.
