Mo Hasan has been through quite a bit as a Trojan, and his resolve will be tested once again.

The redshirt senior quarterback announced on Instagram Wednesday that he has ruptured his right Achilles tendon. Hasan has dealt with injuries each of his three seasons in Los Angeles. After transferring to the program from Vanderbilt, he was hampered by a leg injury in 2020 and then tore his ACL during spring ball ahead of the 2021 season.

With a rupture, high-impact activity—jogging, jumping, etc.—is usually off-limits until roughly six months post-surgery. Hasan could end up missing the entire 2022 season, though there’s recent history of players coming back just as strong in a relatively short amount of time. Los Angeles Rams running back Cam Akers ruptured his Achilles tendon in July of 2021 and was playing six months later.

The injury will leave USC with two healthy scholarship quarterbacks—transfer and presumptive starter Caleb Williams, and second-year man Miller Moss.
