Quoting Carroll - Tuesday Practice

SCPlayBook's Kevin Carden caught up with USC Trojan Head Coach Pete Carroll after Tuesday's practice, and the head man commented on several players for Nebraska week.

On Tuesday's practice:

"We are kinda ahead on some stuff. We still need to get sharp though. Hopefully we will come back tomorrow and we will be on the money."

On Chauncey Washington:

"He just started to bang around. He feels fine but they want to make sure he saw the doctors tonight before he did anything extensive."

On Joe McKnight:

"He's full speed. He's ready to go. We got him involved in the game plan and we are looking forward to him playing again."

On Hershel Dennis:

"Herschel's getting close too. I don't think he's ready yet. He's getting his confidence and making his moves. He's making it through practice. We have to see how he endures a full week of practice. Maybe he's within a week of getting back too."

On Shareece Wright:

"He played great in the game. He really made his plays. We are comfortable with him in the rotations and playing with the starters. He has earned that through his hard work and good play."

On Taylor Mays:

"He has terrific athletic ability. He's one of the fastest guys on the team. He's got athleticism in all areas, but better than all of that he's such a competitive guy in studying and preparing."
