Yvenson Bernard Listed as "Questionable" for USC

The man who missed last year's 33-31 upset over USC could find himself on the sidelines for the second consecutive year-- this time with a shoulder injury.

Last year, Yvenson Bernard suffered an ankle injury in the Arizona game that kept him sidelined for USC. This year, a left shoulder injury he suffered in the second quarter of the Stanford game could be serious enough for him to watch the game next to Sammie Stroughter on the sidelines. Yvenson will undergo an MRI today.

"We're exploring the possibilities of him playing," Riley told the media last night. Riley also said that Bernard had some pain in his right shoulder that was bothering him before he got hit on the left side.

Matthew Sieverson and Clinton Polk stepped up as back-ups in the Stanford game. Sieverson rushed for 68 yards on 16 carries, and Polk had 8 carries for 27 yards. James Rodgers could also helped out-- OSU seemed to be trying out a package on Saturday that put James in as a halfback.

So, hopefully the MRI goes well. We'll tell you the results as soon as they come out.
