Ups and downs on USC's injury list

Posted by ESPN.com's Ted Miller

USC is banged up, but it may be a bit healthier when Stanford comes to town on Saturday.

Fullback Stanley Havili, who saw limited action at Arizona State, will start. He first hurt his shoulder on Oct. 17 at Notre Dame, and his absence has been felt in both the running and passing game.

The news is not so certain with tight end Anthony McCoy. The good news is McCoy has been cleared to practice. The bad news is McCoy told the LA Times that his ankle "feels like hell." Consider McCoy questionable.

Receiver Damian Williams suffered a high-ankle sprain at Arizona State and is doubtful.

As for the defense, end Everson Griffen (toe), linebacker Chris Galippo (knee, stinger) and linebacker Malcolm Smith (shoulder) have returned to practice. Defensive tackle Averell Spicer (calf) remains out.

There's even more Trojans injury information here.
