Stafon smiling, looking good


In his hospital room this morning, Stafon Johnson smiles and flashes "fight on" alongside (from left to right) quarterback Matt Barkley, offensive lineman Alex Parsons and offensive lineman Jeff Byers. Johnson, who underwent throat surgery on Sept. 28, has been welcoming teammates and coaches more and more by the day as his condition continues to steadily improve.

Im personally A hardcore oregon duck fan, but im glad to see Stafon doing well and may he get better.

Though I may not be a USC fan, and believe me I'm as far from it (Bear Down Arizona!) as possible, it's never good to see a player get injured like Stafon did and it's always good when those players recover. Here's hoping for the best, Stafon.
