Original Article:

On Monday, we (along with the rest of the sports world) reported that USC cornerback Josh Shaw was out indefinitely after getting hurt saving his 7-year-old nephew from drowning.

Shaw says that he was standing on a second-floor balcony at a family event when he saw his nephew (who can't swim) fall into a swimming pool, and he jumped off the balcony to the concrete below to pull him to safety. Shaw claims to have sustained two high-ankle sprains in the process.

On Tuesday morning during his press conference, USC coach Steve Sarkisian said USC had been informed that the story Shaw gave explaining his injury may not have been true.



This is definitely a bizarre turn - we'll keep you updated as we find out more about Shaw's injury and USC's investigation.
