USC redshirt sophomore RB Tre Madden is considered questionable for Saturday's game against Notre Dame.
Madden injured his hamstring during the game against Arizona. The former linebacker had been running as the team's top ball carrier, totaling 611 yards and three touchdowns this season. The school could lean on Silas Redd if Madden is out, which they did in the second half against Arizona. Tue, Oct 15, 2013 09:50:00 AM

Tre Madden, who moved to running back from linebacker this spring, will miss the 2012 season after tearing a ligament in his left knee.

Coach Lane Kiffin moved Madden to running back to help build depth in an offensive backfield that was decimated by injuries last season. It would have been interesting to see how Madden would have fared during the spring game, but those plans are on hold for at least another year. Madden played all 12 games as a backup linebacker and special teamer in 2011.

For at least the time being, USC is moving Tre Madden from linebacker to tailback.

Madden was recruited as a linebacker and was also a quarterback running the wildcat in high school, so this should not be an awkward transition. It is a move, which may not be long-term, being made because the Trojans need to build depth in the offensive backfield with injuries hindering the position this spring. In addition, Madden provides size (6-0, 220) that the incumbents lack. He appeared in all 12 games last season as a backup LB and special teamer.
