Stanford vs. USC Injury Report: Cardinal Healthy For Showdown, Containing Robert Woods A Must

Heading into Saturday night's showdown with the USC Trojans, the Stanford Cardinal are a healthy team with minimal injuries. According to Ted Miller's final injury report, only two players (Delano Howell, Wayne Lyons) are unlikely to play. That has to bode well for the Cardinal.

The Trojans are dealing with quite a few injuries, including an ankle injury to star wide receiver Robert Woods. He is listed as questionable for the game, though every report is indicating he will play. This could be a problem for Stanford.

Robert Woods has been Matt Barkley's No. 1 target all season long and opposing defenses have paid for it. In just seven games, Woods has 902 receiving yards and eight touchdown receptions. He can beat you deep, he can beat you on a screen pass and he can run solid routes across the middle of the field.

If the Cardinal do not slow down Woods, it could be a long game for the defense. He has a knack for breaking tackles and continuing a play once most feel its over; the secondary needs to ensure this does not happen on Saturday night.
