Scrimmage Update: Key Injury

According to Scott Wolf, starting RB Chauncey Washington left the scrimmage after an apparent shoulder injury:
Washington appears to hurt his shoulder on a run as he comes off the field favoring his right shoulder.
This is not good news, Chauncey kicked off the scrimmage with a 63 yard run and has been very impressive during fall camp. All we can do now is hope that Chauncey is okay. Following the injury, Stafon Johnson proceeded to run with the first team. Suddenly, Moody's transfer doesn't seem so insignificant anymore. Don't forget that freshman RB Broderick Green has yet to be cleared academically by the NCAA. USC is hurting at tailback right now, as seen by Alfred Rowe (who was recently converted to fullback from safety) getting extensive carries tonight:
USC is running out of backs and Rowe gains two for the reserves...Washington, Joe McKnight, C.J. Gable and Hershel Dennis are all standing on the sidelines injured. Plus Marc Tyler.
Get healthy soon guys.

Fight On!

UPDATE on Chauncey, from Wolf's Blog

this is awful news...because injuries like this can turn into things. Before you know it, Chauncey is sitting out the Idaho game,Stafon and Bradford break out, then he gains a few pounds because Pete doesn't want to risk him in practice, etc....

Lets just pray that this injury is the type to heal and never come back

I wouldn't worry just yet. Washington has 3 1/2 weeks to rest and let his should heal. There's no use in attempting to rush him back for the Idaho game if he's not healthy. Stafon and Bradford will probably both rush for over 100 yards against Idaho.
