Football: Monday quick hitters

  • Jeff Tedford said today that QB Zach Maynard played most of the Oregon game with a quad contusion. He said he suffered the injury early in the game. WR Keenan Allen said Maynard told him “he couldn’t throw off his foot.” But Tedford said he took Maynard out in the fourth quarter because he “got drilled and was kind of fuzzy.” But Tedford said he was considering putting backup Allan Bridgford in the game at that point anyway because of the situation.
  • TE Spencer Ladner returned to practice today. Ladner has been out all season after multiple knee surgeries. Tedford said Anthony Miller and Spencer Hagan will remain atop the depth chart, and they will work Ladner in when they can.
  • DE Trevor Guyton practiced today. He was held out yesterday with an undisclosed injury, but he appears to be OK.
  • CB Marc Anthony is still out with his shoulder injury. It’s looking pretty doubtful he will play against USC.

More later….

    Longshore all over again. Oregon going for the legs as usual. JT sticking with an injured QB as usual.

    Really excited to watch this game. Want to see what the environment will be like at AT&T. I was at the Presbyterian game and the environment was awful. It felt like a really pretty high school game. Let’s hope the environment is more like Memorial this time around.

    We’re not expected to beat USC. Will say it again, would like to see some of the young guys get a meaningful drive each half. Including Bridgeford. Including Bigelow. Including Adrian Lee / Kam Jackson.

    Please note that I don’t mean put all the freshmen in there for the same drive. Pick and choose a spot where it makes sense. Just get them on the field so they can see the speed of the game, the expectations, the strength of opposing teams. You can only learn so much by watching and thinking about it.

    Injured QB against USC?

    Shame on Tedford for playing a hurt QB who was obviously struggling to make even simple throws. This man is beyond stubborn.

    So this begs the question – is he healed? And if not, still gonna use him, like Longshore. *sigh*
