USC quarterback JT Daniels is on track to play at Texas.

Daniels, who suffered a bruised throwing hand in the first quarter of last Saturdaya€™s 17-3 loss at Stanford, returned to practice Tuesday and went through the padded workout without much issue.

a€œIta€™s a lot better,a€ Daniels said. a€œIa€™m close to 100 (percent) right now.a€

Daniels seemed to progress throughout the two-hours-long practice at Howard Jones Field. Some of his earlier throws in individual drills looked more wobbly before showing a tighter spiral in 11-on-11 drills to conclude the practice.

Trojans coach Clay Helton said afterward that he was left confident Daniels would be available to play against the Longhorns.

a€œI thought he was decisive, especially in our last period when wea€™re trying to give him the best look possible with our defense,a€ Helton said. a€œHe let it go. I didna€™t see any hesitation. I didna€™t see any wincing. He had a good bruise. It hurts like heck when you bang it off the helmet. But after a couple days and rehab, it feels great. He really looked good.a€

A day earlier, Daniels first resumed throwing during a light workout. It was an encouraging development after he had been expected to rest until Tuesday.

Helton said that Daniels was also a€œspinning it really gooda€ on Monday, though his hand had been tender.

MRI results revealed he had sustained a hand contusion against the Cardinal. He missed one series as a result of the injury, occurring when his hand landed on another playera€™s helmet on the opening drive following a throw.
