USC’s Claude Pelon suffers high ankle sprain, Kevon Seymour returns
USC Coach Steve Sarkisian said Tuesday that defensive lineman Claude Pelon suffered a high ankle sprain during Monday’s practice.
“We had him in a boot today, he was walking. We’ll test him pretty significantly tomorrow,” Sarkisian said.
Pelon, a senior, started at nose tackle against Arizona State in place of Antwaun Woods. He made four tackles, one for a loss.
Woods is expected to play against Washington on Thursday.
Sarkisian said receiver Darreus Rogers, who suffered a hamstring injury against Arizona State, ran during practice Tuesday.
Rogers has caught seven passes for 108 yards and two touchdowns.
Sarkisian said he did not know if Pelon and Rogers would be available against the Huskies.
“We’ve got over 48 hours to get to that point,” Sarkisian said. “So whether they are significant players or role players, or emergency role guys, or they are out, I don’t know exactly yet, but we will see come game time.”
Cornerback Kevon Seymour, who was sidelined against Stanford and Arizona State, is expected to be available.
