USC Football: Mark Sanchez To Start Against Virginia

According to ESPN,

USC quarterback Mark Sanchez went through his first full practice Monday since dislocating his left kneecap 17 days earlier, and appears on track to start Saturday’s season-opener at Virginia.

“Oh, I think so, absolutely. Especially mentally,” Sanchez said afterward, when asked if he believes he’s ready to play. “I feel good about it. If it were up to me, I’m in.”

Sanchez, the projected starter for Southern California, was carted off the practice field Aug. 8 after making a throw and landing awkwardly. X-rays and an MRI exam revealed no ligament, cartilage or bone damage. He had been jogging and throwing for over a week, but wore cleats for the first time Monday since being injured and did most of the work with the first team while wearing a sleeve and a brace on his injured knee.

The Trojans will play at Virginia on 30AUG08.  ABC will be sending Brad Nessler, Bob Griese, Paul Maguire to cover the game.
