USC HC Clay Helton indicated that redshirt junior LB Jabari Ruffin (concussion) has been medically cleared to play in the Holiday Bowl.

Ruffin missed seven games over the course of the 2015 campaign, including the PAC 12 Championship Game, but it appears as though the month off has done him well. The 6-foot-3, 245-pound redshirt junior's been cleared for the Holiday Bowl and should suit up against Wisconsin on December 30. He's recorded just 11 tackles this season due to his injury woes.

The Trojans announced that redshirt sophomore LB Jabari Ruffin tore a knee ligament in practice Sunday and will miss the 2014 season.

"This is very unfortunate news about Jabari, but I know he will rehab well and come back strong next year," said coach Steve Sarkisian. "And, I know our team will step up in his absence." The injury happened when Ruffin intercepted a ball and was tackled during the return. Moving forward, the Trojans will look to J.R. Tavai, Scott Felix, Quinton Powell and freshmen talent to fill the outside linebacker spots.
