USC HC Clay Helton said that sophomore RB Stephen Carr (back) is "already up and walking around."
Carr (6'0/180) underwent surgery to repair a herniated disc in his back earlier this offseason. He's been nixed for spring practice as he rehabs from the procedure, but Clayton indicated this week that he's hopeful that the sophomore back will be healthy for August camp. So long as he can stay on the field, Carr is expected to work as USC's starter for the upcoming campaign as the team moves on from the NFL-bound Ronald Jones. Vavae Malepeai and Aca'Cedric Ware figure to see the bulk of work with the first-team offense while Carr mends this spring. Mar 8 - 7:23 PM

Multiple outlets are reporting that USC sophomore RB Stephen Carr (back) will miss spring practice.

Carr (6'0/180) is set to take over as Trojans lead back in the wake of Ronald Jones' exit for the draft, but due to a herniated disc in his back, USC will have to lean on Vavae Malepeai and Aca’Cedric Ware in practice while he mends. There is no timetable for Carr's return to action at this juncture. As a true freshman, he rushed for 363 yards (5.6 YPC) and three touchdowns while adding another 188 yards on 17 receptions. He flashed on multiple occasions, but also dealt with a nagging foot injury which forced him to miss four games. USC boots up spring practice on March 6.

USC freshman RB Stephen Carr (foot) did not practice on Wednesday.

Carr was dressed out, but did not take part in practice to any serious degree. He is on a string of three consecutive games missed and should very much be considered a question mark for Saturday's game against Arizona State. The 6-foot, 180-pound freshman has shown plenty of flash when healthy this season.

USC freshman RB Stephen Carr (foot) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Notre Dame.

When Carr sits this one, it will mark the third consecutive game that he has missed. Ronald Jones is going to see all the carries that he can handle on Saturday. There remains no timetable for Carr's return to action, but there was some hope that the true freshman would be able to play this weekend before he was officially ruled out and he might not be too far off.

USC freshman RB Stephen Carr (foot) is doubtful for Saturday's game against Utah.

USC freshman RB Stephen Carr rushed for 82 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries in Saturday's 30-20 win over Cal.

Carr started in place of Ronald Jones, who is dealing with an ankle injury. The Golden Bears held the true frosh back in check for the most part -- his long run went for just 13 yards -- but should Jones end up missing significant time, you can expect even bigger efforts from the 6-foot, 210-pounder moving forward. He's as talented a freshman back as there is in the country.

USC freshman RB Stephen Carr will likely start against Cal on Saturday.

Ronald Jones did warm up in advance of the game, as he is dealing with an ankle injury suffered during the practice week. Carr is a more than capable replacement and we're excited to see what he can do in a starting role.

USC freshman RB Stephen Carr rushed for 119 yards on just 11 carries in Saturday's 42-24 win over Stanford.

Carr (6'0/210) did not score a touchdown in the contest -- fellow backfield mate Ronald Jones had both of the team's rushing scores -- but led the Trojans in rushing. He has been brilliant thus far in limited opportunities, having racked up 188 yards on the ground while averaging a silly 10.4 YPC in two games. So long as Jones is healthy, Carr's statistical upside is somewhat capped, but he has shown the ability to find success with reduced totes of the rock. Should Jones come down injured this season, look out.

USC freshman RB Stephen Carr ran for 69 yards on seven carries with two touchdowns in a 49-31 victory over Western Michigan.

Carr (6'0/210) was one of the most impressive freshman in the country over the summer, and it carried over into the Trojans opener. Both of his scores came in the fourth quarter, and both were critical. His first was a one-yard dive into the end zone to give the Trojans a 28-21 lead with 8:57 left. Then, with the Trojans holding a 35-31 lead and looking to run out the clock, Carr burst around the right side for 52 yards to make it 42-31 and put the game out of reach. There are lots of mouths to feed in the Trojan offense -- and Ronald Jones is going to be the main man as long as he's healthy -- but it's clear there's a very bright future for Carr going forward.
