USC football: Garrett Green suffers concussion, mishandles snap
USC did not come away unscathed from its 27-6 victory over Washington State on Saturday night.
Jordan Campbell, making his first start at weak-side linebacker, had a team-best eight tackles before leaving the game after suffering an ankle sprain.
Garrett Green only made one tackle — and it was costly one.
Green dropped Marcus Richmond with a hard hit on the opening kick-off. A few minutes later, the usually sure-handed Green mishandled a snap on a failed extra-point attempt.
There was a good reason.
Green said he suffered a concussion on the tackle on the kick-off. He was removed from the game after trainers recognized he was out of sorts on the extra-point try.
“It was great snap,” Green said. “It definitely hit my hands. I’ll have to do some film work to figure out exactly what happened.”
