    It must be some kind of record.
    Is it just me or did anyone else think Arizona was trying to get our players hurt?

    Most of those plays seemed routine. The USC players aren't prepared for full speed contact because they don't practice it, and it leads to more injuries.

    injured in this game

    WR Munir McClain
    S Talanoa Hufanga
    DE Drake Jackson
    RB Stephen Carr
    OLB Abdul-Malik McClain

    I think Hufanga is in a sling

    I know that the data used to say that natural grass was safer than artificial turf, but I think the new turfs are safer than grass now. I know they will never change the surface at the Coliseum, unless the drought gets epic, but I would like to see the data on the two surfaces.

    Of those 6, hopefully, at least 2 can play within 2 weeks. Fear they are all out at least a month.

    Hufanga and Munir McClain probably out for the season. The others seems to have sprained ankles. Has to be the turf.

    This would have been a good time for a bye. Instead we get a short week.

    Very depressing. It's been the theme all year long. We have Oregon in two weeks. WTF?

    With recent injuries It’s going to take a miracle to beat Oregon.

    The only bright side was many reserve players got to play especially in the secondary. I saw these player numbers playing on defense in the 4th quarter: 13 (Otey), 14 (Jayden W), 18 (Scott), 19(Goforth),25 (Allen), 45(Tufono). And of course 22,23,24 & 42 played earlier.

    Yeah, Hufanga injured his shoulder again, and Munir seems to be a knee injury.

    Stepp and DrakeJ are sprained ankles. Carr is a hamstring injury.

    Hopefully those player who missed the game (EA, OG, GregJ) can make it back. It was good to see ITS play and even make some good plays.

    I was surprised how much ITS played, and how effective he was, given the injury concerns throughout the week. Stepp looked like he took a helmet to the ankle. He was walking gingerly after the game, but completely on his own power. Carr kept saying after the game that he was fine and it was a little tweak. We'll see how that goes since hamstring injuries are notoriously tricky and have a tendency to linger. Drake was in a full walking boot with a cane after the game. Looked like Malik McClain was already in a sling when he came over to check on his brother, whose knee injury looked fairly severe by his reaction.

    I didn't see Hufanga after he was taken to the locker room, but obviously with his history of broken collarbones, an injury to that area is scary.
