Goldson back to safety, for now

A few of us just talked with Dashon Goldson who said he’s likely to play almost exclusively at safety this week to fill in for Jason Wells, who suffered a concussion Saturday against USC.
Goldson also suffered a concussion and said he has no memory of the defensive last play of the game, a third-down pass in the end zone that he helped break up, forcing the Trojans to kick a field goal.
But Goldson said he has recovered well enough to play this week. Wells, however, may be more questionable, so Goldson would likely start in place of Wells if Wells can’t go.
Goldson, who is officially listed as a cornerback, said that is fine with him. “It’s all the same to me,” he said. Goldson played safety the last two years but was moved to cornerback during spring practice. He has played both CB and safety the past two weeks in seeing his most significant playing time after being limited earlier in the year due to a high ankle sprain. He said the ankle is not 100 percent, but good enough as he played roughly 60 plays against USC.
Secondary coach J.D. Williams indicated that Wells is probably out for this week, saying “the best thing for him right now is probably some time.” Wells also suffered a concussion during the pre-season on the memorable play that sent C.J. Wallace to the hospital.
Goldson played safety most of the second half Saturday after Wells left the game.
Goldson said he suffered his concussion on USC’s second-and-goal play on the last drive. He initially asked out of the game but stayed in, and says now he has no memory of that play, a pass from John David Booty to Fred Davis in the end zone that Goldson batted away.
Goldson said he assumes he will return to cornerback once Wells returns to health.
