USC Running Back Silas Redd to Play Versus Arizona

USC running back Silas Redd practiced with the team on Wednesday, and announced he will make his debut versus the Arizona Wildcats.

After being sidelined due to injury, USC running back Silas Redd will finally make his debut for the USC Trojans on Oct. 10th. Redd announced on Wednesday after practice that he is scheduled to play versus the Arizona Wildcats.

Redd participated in a full practice with the Trojans on Wednesday, and was excited for the opportunity to play. USC's leading rusher in 2012 has been limited in practice after suffering a knee injury in the Spring. Redd was a big part of USC's run game last season rushing for 905 yards and nine touchdowns. Unfortunately, Redd has not played for first five games of the 2013 season.

After practice Redd tweeted out, "Felt too good to be back on that field."

Redd missed the Trojans trip to Hawaii in late August and looked to rehab his knee with Dr. James Andrews. Despite suiting up for the Utah State game, Redd did not see the field. Redd returns during the Trojans bye-week, and looks to help USC rebound from a 62-41 loss to the Arizona State Sun Devils.

Running backs Justin Davis and Tre Madden have been getting the carries while Redd was out. So far this season Madden has rushed for 583 yards and three touchdowns, while Davis has rushed for 311 yards and five trouchdowns. Madden is also the second leading rusher in the Pac-12. USC interim head coach Ed Orgeron has not decided who will start at running back for Thursdays game versus Arizona.

The Trojans are currently 3-2 on the season, and have yet to get their first Pac-12 win.
