No Official Word Yet, But Corp Appears Likely to Start

Still sidelined with a bruised shoulder, Matt Barkley was unable to throw in practice Wednesday, fueling speculation that he’ll be unable to go on Saturday. From the L.A. Times:

Meantime, out on the field, sophomore quarterback Aaron Corp looked the picture of health while taking another step toward possibly making his first career start.

Unless Barkley makes an improbable recovery from a bone bruise, Corp is on track to be under center when the Trojans open Pacific 10 Conference play on Saturday at Washington.

Corp, who had entered training camp No. 1 on the depth chart, had a pass intercepted for the third consecutive practice. But he continued to show that he was no longer limited by the cracked fibula that he suffered on Aug. 10, an injury that opened the door for Barkley to start the first two games.
