Notebook: Kiffin's Sunday night call

USC head coach Lane Kififn discussed his thoughts about the Trojans 30-13 win over Hawaii in their season opener since reviewing the film.

Redd visits Dr. James Andrews
USC tailback Silas Redd tore his meniscus during spring practices, sidelining him in March, through the summer, and even during fall camp as he continues to rehab the repaired knee.

Redd hardly participated in fall camp practices, though he did take a few no-contact reps.

The senior did not travel to Hawaii for the Trojans season opener against the Rainbow Warriors, instead he traveled to Pensacola (Fla.) to undergo a procedure by Dr. James Andrews.

USC head coach Lane Kiffin said Sunday night during a call with local media that Redd "felt positive" about how his procedure with Andrews, a renowned orthopedic surgeon, went and that Kiffin anticipates Redd to return to the field as this week.

Cornerback health
During the first half of the Trojans' game against Hawaii both starting cornerbacks Anthony Brown and Kevon Seymour went down with undisclosed injuries.

Both were sidelined wearing sweats for the second half.

Kiffin did not disclose their injuries, but said he hopes both Brown and Seymour will be back on the field this week while leaving a bit of room to believe they may not.

"If they don't, other guys will need to step up. We're going to have injuries and guys have to be ready to play."

Tailback recap
Two backs received the majority of carries for the Trojans at Hawaii, Tre Madden and Justin Davis.

It was the first college action for both players. Madden finished with 18 carries for 112 yards. Davis, a true freshman, finished with 14 carries for 89 yards.

Kiffin noted if Davis didn't fumble a carry he could have had a 100-yard rushing game in his debut.

Offensive line
Kiffin said the offensive line's run protection was "good" but its pass protection was "poor".

Chad Wheeler, a redshirt freshman, made his first career start at left tackle. Though he made mistakes, Kiffin is confident in his abilities going forward."He wasn't perfect," Kiffin explained. "He had identification issue stuff, that was normal. But he wasn't jumping offsides or false starting like most first guys do."

Kiffin said left guard Max Tuerk played "really well" and center Marcus Martin played "well".

Right guard John Martinez went into the game nursing an injury that Kiffin said "showed up" in his play.

Right tackle Kevin Graf played "really well" in the run game according to Kiffin, but "struggled" in the pass game.

Defense shines
With the exception of the 60-yard touchdown pass allowed by the Trojans' defense in the final second of the fourth quarter, Kiffin thought his defense had good day.

The front-seven collected five sacks by halftime and finished with seven. The safeties and linebacker Hayes Pullard, collected four interceptions throughout the game.

Kiffin called the unit "Relentless" while noting that in just the fourth play of his collegiate career, freshman Su'a Cravens grabbed an interception.

Quick Hits:
Andre Heidari's 52-yard field goal before halftime was the fourth longest in USC history.
