Instant Update: Monday practice 

August, 7, 2012
Lane Kiffin described the practice as "top notch preparation for a good day." There was a lot of energy and a lot of media on the sidelines waiting to see the 2012 version of the Trojans.

The RBs looked real sharp. Curtis McNeal reminded everyone that he is the returning starter for this team with several long runs, including a touchdown on the opening play of a run drill. D.J. Morgan followed that up right away with a touchdown run of his own. Silas Redd looked as advertised -- he ran real hard on one play to the left where he took on several would-be tacklers at the sideline. After the practice Redd said, "It felt great to be out here. This is my family now."

Robert Woods looked sharp in early individual drills and special teams work. There didn't seem to be any noticeable impact from his ankle but Kiffin held him out the remainder of practice just to be safe.
