Sun Bowl 2012: USC RB Silas Redd close to 100 percent after ankle injury

Stephen Dunn

Redd has enjoyed his first season with the USC Trojans despite the win-loss record.

With only their bowl game remaining, the USC Trojans are looking to ending their disappointing season on a high note. Junior running back Silas Redd is looking to end his first season as a Trojan on a high note, as well, now that he says he is at 95-percent health after an ankle injury has given him problems down the stretch of the season.

Redd has rushed for 817 yards and nine touchdowns as part of the collection of running backs the Trojans have deployed this season. At times, he's been the featured back and at other times, they've used his versatility in other ways. But it's a good sign that the former Penn State star is close to 100 percent with this season ending and the next one approaching.

There is no guarantee that Redd returns, however, as the NFL Draft could be an enticing proposition. But as of now, Redd told the USC Trojans blog that he is leaning toward staying, but he'll have a better idea of his decision once the bowl game is over.

The Trojans face the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets in the Sun Bowl at 11 a.m. ET Dec. 31.
