Troy Dye is listed at starting inside linebacker this week after breaking his thumb against Washington and not playing against Washington State. Dru Mathis started in his place. Against USC, Troy Dye is good to go, he will practice beginning on Tuesday.
Travis Dye is listed on the depth chart as co-starter at running back alongside CJ Verdell, Cyrus Habibi-Likio and Darrian Felix. According to Cristobal, he is healthy, ready to practice on Tuesday and will play vs. USC
Travis Dye suffered a helmet-to-helmet collision against Washington State and immediately went to the locker room. He did not return.
