USC QB Cody Kessler was noticeably limping after the Fresno State game this weekend. Originally, Kessler told reporters that he had an ingrown toenail, but further investigation proved that it was far more serious. In fact, it appears the Kessler had a staph infection.
USC quarterback Cody Kessler did not practice today because he was hospitalized with staph infection in his toe, sources said. Kessler underwent some type of procedure on his toe, but USC officials did not say what that entailed.
Kessler underwent toe surgery this morning to take care of the infection and is still expected to play this weekend. However, this weekend isn’t just any game The Trojans will be playing Stanford, another major powerhouse in the Pac-12 conference. Only time will tell if the infection will effect Kessler’s performance against Stanford.
