Smith-Schuster back at USC practice


USC sophomore wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster took part in all drills during the Trojans practice on Saturday.

Smith-Schuster had missed both days of practice earlier in the week, with USC coach Steve Sarkisian saying at the time it was for “personal reasons.”

“It was great to have JuJu back out there today with us,” Sarkisian said. “He kind of resolved the personal stuff that he was working on, so it's good to have him back.”

Smith-Schuster has 27 catches for 537 yards (19.9 yards per catch) with six touchdowns this season.

USC held the rare Saturday practice, and will practice again on Sunday, in preparation for a Thursday game next week against Washington.

The Trojans continue to be without wide receiver Darreus Rogers, who has not practiced since suffering a hamstring injury last week against Arizona State. Sarkisian said the team will look at other options including Isaac Whitney, Jalen Greene and true freshman Dominic Davis, who was moved from running back to receiver last week in an attempt to look at what he can do at that spot.
