With four games left on USC's regular season schedule, things are starting to look up. The Trojans are 3-1 under interim head coach Ed Orgeron and now injured players are starting to return...
Though the situation has been looking bleak on the USC
injury front, the start of November is looking positive for the Trojans roster.
On Tuesday, for the first time in weeks, all five of USC's scholarship receivers were available to practice: Marqise Lee, Nelson Agholor, Darreus Rogers, DeVon Flournoy, and Victor Blackwell.
Also returning to the offense Tuesday was tight end Jalen Cope-Fitzpatrick. Cope-Fitzpatrick has been sidelined since the Trojans loss at Notre Dame. Against Utah, no scholarship tight ends were available.
Sidelined at Oregon State, freshman safety Su'a Cravens also returned to the practice field.
Starting right tackle Kevin Graf, who went down against Utah with an ankle injury and missed the game at Oregon State, remains questionable.
Orgeron announced Anthony Brown, Morgan Breslin, Randall Telfer and Tre Madden as out against California.
Earlier in the day on the Pac-12 coaches conference call, Orgeron said Breslin will be out "indefinitely" due to his hip strain.
The Trojans only had 46 recruited scholarship (non-redshirting) players available on Friday night at Oregon State.
If players remain healthy throughout the practice week, that number will undoubtedly improve against Cal.
