USC running back Travis Dye is likely done for the year.
The talented RB suffered a lower leg injury during a 55-17 blowout win Friday night over Colorado, and head coach Lincoln Riley said after the game it’s unlikely he suits up again the rest of the year.
Riley further added, “It’s tough. It shook us all a little bit. He’s such an emotional leader. It sucks. No other way to put it,” according to ESPN.
Caleb Williams also discussed the devastating health situation, and told the media, “I told him I love him and we were going to finish this for him.”
Travis Dye was having a great year.
He was putting together an outstanding senior season. Now, with games left against UCLA and Notre Dame, the Trojans will be without one of the team’s best players.
Those are both tough games no matter what the situation. They both just got a hell of a lot tougher without Travis Dye being on the field.
Hopefully, Dye is able to bounce back and keep playing football. It’s just a tough break for USC as the season winds down.
