Redskins signed USC RB Silas Redd.
Redd (5-foot-9 3/4, 212) signed with Penn State as a four-star recruit, but transferred to USC for his final two seasons after the Jerry Sandusky scandal. Injury prone with fumbling problems, Redd finished his college career with 2,959 yards and 19 touchdowns on 569 carries (5.20 YPC), with only 32 receptions. Redd ran a sluggish 4.70 forty at the Combine, albeit showing some short-area burst with a 10-foot-2 broad jump. Redd can pass protect and can get what's blocked. Sun, May 11, 2014 02:55:00 PM

USC senior RB Silas Redd will not play in the school's bowl game on December 21 against Fresno State.

Redd will miss the game due to a knee injury. His final two collegiate years have been a disappointment since transferring from Penn State. From fumbling to injuries, Redd will almost certainly be a mid to late third day selection.

USC senior RB Silas Redd has been ruled out versus Stanford.

It is bad news for Redd, but that is not new thing for Redd since transferring to USC. We still like his talent, but Redd will almost certainly hear his name called during the draft's third day.

USC senior RB Silas Redd is questionable to play against Stanford with a knee injury.

Redd has had a tough two seasons after transferring from Penn State. Whether it has been ball security issues or injuries, Redd has failed to generate consistency. He will draw a draft pick in May, but likely in the third day.

USC senior RB Silas Redd will miss the remainder of Saturday's game against Cal with a right knee injury.

Redd has had a tough time while at USC. Between injuries and fumbles, the Penn State transfer has no epitomized consistency. We did not see the hit that caused the injury, but knee issues are never a good thing.

USC senior RB Silas Redd plans on making his season debut against Arizona next Thursday.

Redd made headlines last offseason after transferring from Penn State to USC, likely looking for a stable program to play in. It is an entirely different situation, but USC isn't so stable after all. Redd rushed for 905 yards and nine touchdowns on 5.4 yards per carry, but displayed major ball security issues. He is talented, but USC's offense has been putrid all season.

USC has named defensive line coach Ed Orgeron the team's interim head coach.

Athletic director Pat Haden made the move. Oregeron was the assistant head coach at USC from 1998 to 2004 and had the same title in Tennessee during the 2009 season. The long time staffer was also the head coach for Ole Miss from 2005 to 2007. The Trojans are 3-2 on the season. We expect the school to look outside of the program for their next head coach.

USC senior RB Silas Redd has been ruled out for the season opener against Hawaii with a knee injury.

"Gonna hurt to not travel with my squad [today]," Redd wrote, "but I know y’all gonna handle business in a few day! I’m working to get back 100 percent" Redd missed the end of spring workouts with a knee injury, and head coach Lane Kiffin recently said he wasn;t sure if the running back would play in the opener. Tre Madden and Justin Davis were listed as co-starters on the school's most recent depth chart.

Draft insider Tony Pauline believes USC senior RB Silas Redd's size and play speed will concern NFL evaluators.

Pauline does add that Redd's ball carrying skills, vision, and instincts are feature runner caliber at the NFL level, but the negatives could alter the running back's evaluation. Redd was a bit of a disappointment after transferring from Penn State, but so was most of the Trojans' offense. If he can improve his ball security, expect bigger production in 2013.

NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah compared USC senior RB Silas Redd to Javon Ringer.

Jeremiah notes Redd has "average size (and) speed but runs hard inside." The senior made news last offseason after transferring from Penn State, but he dealt with injuries and ball security issues during his first season in Southern California. Redd is talented and should have a better showing in 2013.

ESPN's Mel Kiper ranks USC's Silas Redd as the top senior RB in the 2014 class.

Redd checks in as the fourth running back overall. "Redd isn't what I'd call an explosive runner, but he does a very good job of running through contact and grinding out extra yards," Kiper writes. "He ran a little dinged up toward the end of last season, and should be even better in 2013. When he takes on contact, Redd runs bigger than his listed 200 pounds." We are more worried about his ball security issues.

USC junior RB Silas Redd will undergo surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee.

The soon to be senior suffered the injury during the school's scrimmage last Tuesday. He will miss the rest of spring practice, but head coach Lane Kiffin believes Redd will certainly be healthy when the Trojans open summer practice in four months.

USC junior RB Silas Redd's availability for Saturday's game against UCLA may be in question.

Due to head coach Lane Kiffin's strict injury information restrictions, the type of injury has not been disclosed, but Kiffin only answered with "hope so" when asked if Redd will suit up. The junior has flashed solid play, but poorly time fumbles have kept him from a good first season with the Trojans.

USC head coach Lane Kiffin has not held back his disdain for junior RB Silas Redd's fumbling issues, along with the other Trojans' RBs.

"It's been very discouraging," Kiffin said. "They've been momentum-changing turnovers, where they've been really big deals." Last week, Redd fumbled at the start of the second quarter with the Trojans in the red zone down ten points. As we've seen in the NFL, ball security issues can land a young player in the dog house very quickly.
