Brian Baucham Injury: USC CB Hospitalized With Breathing Issue

Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

USC cornerback Brian Baucham has been hospitalized with a breathing issue that occurred following the Trojans' win over Cal on Saturday.

The situation was serious over the weekend, with USC Trojans cornerback Brian Baucham spending Saturday and Sunday in intensive care on a ventilator. The fifth-year senior's condition is improving, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Baucham recorded a season-high three tackles against the Golden Bears before being rushed to the hospital in an ambulance. He has played his career as a reserve at the cornerback spot and on special teams, recording 23 total tackles.

The 22-year-old came to USC out of West Torrance High School in Torrance, Calif., back in 2009 as a two-star running back. He was ineligible to play last season after appearing in 12 games in 2010. He missed time as a freshman with a toe injury.

The best single-game performance of Baucham's career so far came against Washington in 2010, when he recorded four tackles and a pass defensed.
