USC Trojans: Could Armond Armstead's Career Be in Jeopardy?
USC expected Armstead to be one of their starting defensive lineman in 2011, but head coach Lane Kiffin continues to hold him out of practice until results come back from the doctors.
"We're still getting stuff back in," said Kiffin. "Some tests have not come back, so we're holding him out in the meantime."
While the Trojans' coaching staff could be looking on the bright side and hoping for the best for their young lineman, Scott Wolf of the Los Angeles Daily News reports that sources close to USC are worried that this could be a lot more serious than they want to believe.
Wolf says there are concerns this could be a heart problem. If that's the case, could it possibly end Armstead's football career?
