USC linebacker to miss the remainder of the season with injury, per report
USC linebacker Raesjon Davis will miss the rest of the season with a wrist injury, according to USCfootball.com’s Connor Morrissette.
Davis had surgery earlier this week that will keep him out of the regular-season finale against UCLA on Saturday and sideline him for the Trojans’ bowl game.
The 6-foot, 220-pound junior started in last week’s loss to Oregon, finishing with four tackles.
So far this season, Davis has four starts, 18 tackles, and assisted on a tackle for loss. Davis has logged more than 200 snaps on defense this season and has a 60.9 overall grade from Pro Football Focus. However, among the five linebackers who have regularly seen the field for USC this season, he has the second-best grade.
Eric Gentry is the only USC ‘backer with at least a 70 defensive grade from PFF. Gentry did not play last week against Oregon. According to Morrissette, Gentry is expected back on Saturday against UCLA.
Kickoff against the Bruins is set for 12:30 p.m. PT on ABC.
