After appearing in just 20 snaps in the season opener, the future looked bleak for USC Trojans tight end Daniel Imatorbhebhe.
At one point, according to the Los Angeles Times, USC head coach Clay Helton and his staff considered shutting him down all together for the year.
Now, according to Zach Helfand of the Times, the tight end could very well play against Utah on Saturday evening after suffering a hip flexor.
Tight end Daniel Imatorbhebhe is a possibility to play against Utah, a week ahead of schedule.

According to Alicia de Artola of Fansided, the tight end saw action in 7-on-7 and 11-on-11 drills this week.
Imatorbhebhe had to work his way up from running on an underwater treadmill, to an AlterG treadmill, to running out on the field last week. This week, he has participated in practice on a limited basis, but saw action during 7-on-7 and 11-on-11 on Wednesday.
Last year, Imatorbhebhe had four touchdown catches and 250 total yards receiving on 17 grabs.
