Storylines from Wednesday practice 

November, 2, 2011
Injury report – Out: Jawanza Starling, George Farmer, Marc Tyler. Limited: Rhett Ellison, Dion Bailey.

With T.J. McDonald suspended for the first half of Friday’s game and Starling missing Wednesday’s practice, Lane Kiffin said the Trojans could start two new safeties against the Buffaloes. Drew McAllister is already slated to start in place of McDonald, and Marshall Jones would get the nod if Starling is unable to go.

Robert Woods continues to be slowed by an ankle injury. He said he “close enough to 100 percent” and added that at this point in the season, nobody is 100 percent healthy. Kiffin said of Woods: “That ankle won’t get right.” Kiffin added that even going back to the Arizona game, when Woods broke a long touchdown along the sideline, there was a limp in his stride that wasn’t present last season.
