The latest news coming from the player doesn’t bode well for his availability for the near future, either.
In a tweet posted to his Twitter account Saturday night, the Trojans running back thanked athletic director Pat Haden and head coach Lane Kiffin “for allowing me to come down to Pensacola to see Dr. James Andrews, the best at what he does!” Andrews is the world-renowned orthopedic surgeon who is charged with the ligaments and tendons of some of the most high-profile athletes in the country.
USC has not commented on when, or even if, Redd will return to the playing field.
Redd, the Trojans leading rusher in 2012, missed the latter half of spring practice with a knee injury. The injury bled into summer camp and, ultimately, kept the back out of the season-opening win.
