Savannah plays through broken hand

As mentioned in the earlier post, the only injury news of the day is that E.J. Savannah broke his hand again at some point in the first half, He was already playing with a broken bone in his left hand and re-broke it against the Trojans.
“They just clubbed it up at halftime and I just played with it,” Savannah said.
Savannah said he can’t remember exactly when the injury occurred.
“I remember what play it was, I just don’t remember when the play was,” he said. “I tried to catch myself on the ground and it just snapped.”
Savannah had five tackles in the game and said he didn’t think the injury impacted his play.
“Not really,” he said. “It was obviously broken and I’ve got two broken bones in it now. But it’s football. It’s not for everyone.”
Cort Dennison subbed a few times for Savannah the rest of the way, including on USC’s last drive — Dennison was in for the last couple plays as the Huskies held the Trojans out of the end zone.
“He’s a tough kid,” said Steve Sarkisian. “He’ll be okay.”
