The USC Trojans could be without starting center Toa Lobendahn going into Saturday’s match-up against the Utah State Aggies. He injured his right knee in last weekend’s game against Alabama and has not practiced all week.
Head coach Clay Helton spoke with The Orange County Register and said that Lobendahn is currently “50-50” when it comes to his recovery. They want to take every precaution necessary when it comes to one of their best offensive linemen.
“He’s feeling better today,” Helton said, “but when you have a kid who’s had a couple knee surgeries, you’re going to be ultra careful.”
Those two surgeries have happened over the last few years with one coming last season when he tore his ACL in his left knee. He also had surgery on his right knee in his high school.
