USC's Baker being cautious - OC Register
One of Sam Baker’s most important jobs is protecting quarterback John David Booty. At the moment, one of the USC football team’s primary jobs is protecting Baker.

In order to play against Idaho, Baker had to swallow a pain killer called Toradol, then get the area around his cracked rib numbed by a local anesthetic. The pain when he moved around was still intense enough to get him out of the game after just four series.

“It was kind of taking the wind out of me and stuff like that,” Baker said.

Having its All-American left tackle sporadically available is a big enough deal for USC, but it’s a bigger deal now...
