USC's George Farmer bitten by brown recluse spider
Trojans receiver will miss a week or two after being bitten.
He's expected to be just fine.
A bite from a brown recluse spider is dangerous, but most are treatable. The trick for Farmer was that the bite can take a few weeks before causing any significant pain, and if left untreated, the bite can be fatal.
He's expected to miss a week or two of football activities, but should be back in time for summer camp with the Trojans.
What isn't known, however, is if the spider that bit Farmer was radioactive, and whether or not the bite will cause Farmer to have superpowers.
Developing superpowers is an NCAA violation, and with USC fresh off its postseason ban in 2012, it probably doesn't want to take any chances. Still, if Farmer starts making catches by shooting webs at passes to reel them in, an NCAA investigation will likely follow.
