Today was the media’s last chance to see USC in practice or talk to anyone with the team until after Monday’s Outback Bowl game against Michigan, so we won’t know until game time the status of starting offensive linemen Zack Bailey and Donnell Stanley.Both were in yellow during Friday’s practice and and wearing the heavy knee braces. Bailey also had a major tape job on is right ankle. Neither participated in drills though they were dressed in full pads.
Running back Rico Dowdle also was in a yellow jersey but was not in pads, further indication that he won’t play Monday. But his fellow running back AJ Turner said he’s 100% healthy and ready to go.
Tight end kKC Crosby, who also is coming off a lower leg injury, has been practicing in full pads and appears ready to play as well.
After practice Gamecock quarterback Jake Bentley, Bryan Edwards and Turner were among the offensive players to meet with the media.
Turner talks about the flare up during the bowling competition
