Curtis McNeal Injury: USC Tailback Leaves Game

USC Trojans running back Curtis McNeal left the game against the No. 21 Stanford Cardinal with an apparent injury to his side in the second quarter. McNeal walked to the locker room under his own power but was seen wincing and holding his right side while walking to the locker room.

McNeal, who has been listed each week as the co-starter at tailback along with Silas Redd, had one yard on two carries before the injury. But, he was able to return and carry the ball twice, including a 26-yard run for the final play of the first half, giving him 33 yards in the opening two quarters.

McNeal in 2011 became the 27th USC tailback ever to run for 1,000 yards in a season. His 6.9 yards-per-rush average was the highest by a Trojans running back since Reggie Bush in 2005, and he had four games of over 100 yards.
