The Biletnikoff Award-winning receiver's status for Monday's game is unknown.

Southern Cal wide receiver Marqise Lee injured his knee during practice Saturday, after which he left the field and did not return. Scott Wolf of the Los Angeles Daily News tweeted that USC coach Lane Kiffin was "hopeful" that Lee would play in the Sun Bowl Monday:

Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times and Rich Hammond of The Orange County Register watched Lee gingerly climb the steps of the team bus following practice:

Marqise Lee caught 112 passes in 2012, recording 1,680 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns. The sophomore wideout broke the 100-yard mark in eight of the Trojans' 12 games this season. Lee won the Biletnikoff Award, given to the nation's top collegiate receiver, and was briefly considered a Heisman Trophy dark horse after a 16-catch, 345-yard performance against Arizona Oct. 27. He also was named to the Walter Camp All-America team.

Southern Cal faces the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets in the 2012 Sun Bowl on Monday, Dec. 31 in El Paso, Texas.
