USC QB Sanchez Dislocates Knee
Sanchez tweaks knee in practice
last Friday, and outlook is still unclear.

Non-contact injuries can be just as serious
Sanchez was in a great spot. Projected
starter and leader of the highly ranked Trojans, he seemed ready to deal with
this adversity. But before he could make
it into a game, let alone the September 13th showdown, he dislocates
his patella after landing on it awkwardly.
He could miss up to four weeks, although doctors say there was no
ligament damage. "It was scary,
frightening at first," Sanchez told ESPN. "The way they say these
things happen, it could be a lot worse. ... I have heard about people who come
back from this in a short period of time and others in a long period. I'm
hoping mine is short."
This could be trouble for the Trojans, especially early
on. We all know the season rides on the
Sept. 13th game for both schools.
Sanchez says he hopes to be ready for their opening game at Virginia on August
30th. Whether he comes back in two weeks
or tomorrow, it’s never good to see your starting QB get carted off of the
field before the season. Stay tuned to
