Ethan Johnson practiced Wednesday and is expected to play against USC on Saturday night.
The senior defensive end suffered a high ankle sprain against Purdue and did not suit up for the Air Force game. The team’s bye week has given him additional time to recover.“He’s not 100 percent but he’s been able to practice,” coach Brian Kelly said. “He was in for team today. I’d say he’s in the mix but I wouldn’t expect him to play his normal 50, 60 plays.”
