Lamar Dawson Out For Season

Middle linebacker Lamar Dawson suffered a knee injury in practice Tuesday and is out for the season. He joins tailback Justin Davis, who underwent ankle surgery. Safety Gerald Bowman is going to redshirt after suffering a shoulder injury.

On the plus side, tailback Tre Madden is practicing and will probably play. Anthony Sarao will start at linebacker in place of Dawson.

    Dawson has been probably the biggest disappointment of any USC player on the roster. I hope he can turn it on next year and wear the #55 proudly.

    This is crazy….who’s next??? And how are they favored by six and a hook???

      It must be because the Utah quarterback has an injured hand.

    Sarao hasn’t shown anything more than being a back-up. Quinton Powell, Jabari Ruffin, Scott Starr and Company need to step up. I hope this doesn’t get too bad.

      I agree…. although he can hit like truck, watching Sarao in pass coverage is a painful thing to witness… keep an eye out for a big game by Powell this weekend….

    They have depth at Running back and can rotate those Linebackers until they find a good fit. Anthony Sarao is a bit undersize but almost the same type of player Lamar Dawson is and if he can’t do it I’m sure somebody else in their stable can. So I really don’t see where there is going to be a problem just yet with those injuries.

    What would the NCAA do if USC recruited more than allowed? make USC pay a fine?

      Most of the teams in the SEC oversign recruiting classes EVERY year…….
