Report: Porter Gustin still not practicing, unlikely to play in Pac-12 Championship Game

The USC defense faces a tough task in attempting to stop Stanford’s offense, especially running back Bryce Love, in Friday night’s Pac-12 Championship game. It appears the Trojans may have to do it without junior outside linebacker Porter Gustin, who has missed the last three games with a toe injury.

The Trojans practiced Monday evening and Gustin was not involved.

Gustin has been limited to four games all season and only took a few snaps in his last outing: the Oct. 28 game at Arizona State. The edge rusher did record four tackles in USC’s 42-24 win over Stanford at the Coliseum on Sept. 9.

The toe injury has been bothersome for Gustin all season. The 6-foot-5, 255-pounder recorded 5.5 sacks last season and came into this season with high expectations.
