Kiffin would also go on to mention that Woods is having trouble beating practice squad cornerbacks right now due to his ankle, and is such a competitor that he'll tell coaches he's ready to go no matter what. 

"If you look at the last two games and yesterday, he's going in the wrong direction." Kiffin said of Woods.   

Not exactly a vote of confidence that Woods will be suiting up this weekend, though that might be only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Trojan injuries, as both their offensive and defensive lines may be without a couple of starters this Saturday. 

Defensive tackles DaJohn Harris (ankle) and Christian Tupou (knee) did not participate in Wednesday practice, neither did offensive tackle Matt Kalil, though defensive coordinator Ed Orgeron said he expects Harris and Tupou to both play against Oregon.
