USC could be without starting guard for opener

Khaliel Rodgers

With the season opener exactly 10 days away, USC could be at less than full strength along the offensive line.

Starting guard Khaliel Rodgers, the school confirmed late Tuesday night, suffered a sprained knee during practice this week. He is expected to be sidelined for a period of 10-14 days.

With the opener against Fresno State set for Aug. 30, Rodgers’ availability for the game is, obviously, very much up in the air.

A four-star member of the Trojans, Rodgers’ was rated as the No. 1 guard in the country by Rivals.com and the No. 51 player at any position in the country. The 6-2, 295-pound Rodgers took a redshirt as a true freshman, but has been working with the first-team offense at right guard throughout summer camp.

    Bad break for the young man. Looks like it’s time for A. Walker to step up and redeem himself his senior year. I’ve been waiting for this guy to live up to his abilities. The time is now!

    The Trojans don’t have the depth to absorb too many of these injuries.
