Emotions ran high on Saturday night as star USC wide receiver Drake London suffered an injury to his right ankle during the Trojans 41-34 victory over the Arizona Wildcats.
London caught a six-yard pass from freshman quarterback Jaxson Dart in the end zone for a USC touchdown, but shortly after grabbed his leg in extreme pain. USC medical staff rushed over to London immediately to address the injury, placed him in an air-cast and carted him off the field.
"It's really tough, when they brought the cast I knew it wasn't good and you never like to see an injury, but when I saw that I knew it was really bad news," said USC quarterback Kedon Slovis after the game. "It sucks. Best receiver, [and] player on the team so it hurts a lot."
Although interim head coach Donte Williams has yet to confirm London's long-term status, he admitted on Saturday that 'season-ending' is a 'fear'. Many took to social media to support the talented wide receiver after the incident. Here are their reactions:
Former USC Wide Receiver Robert Woods
Former USC Quarterback Matt Leinart
Current USC Quarterback Mo Hasan
London finished the night with nine receptions for 81 yards and two touchdowns. This season he has accumulated 88 receptions, 1,084 yards, and seven touchdowns.
