USC's Marqise Lee reportedly out with injury vs. Utah

Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports

Lee has missed most of USC's last two games with a knee sprain he suffered back in September.

USC Trojans wide receiver Marqise Lee will not play against Utah this weekend as he continues to recover from a knee sprain, according to ESPN's Joe Schad.

Lee sprained his left knee against Arizona State on Sept. 28 and, after sitting out against Arizona nearly two weeks later, he played sparingly against Notre Dame before re-injuring himself during the first half. He did not return to the game and was listed as questionable prior to Saturday's game in Los Angeles.

USC's injury troubles have been well documented this season. Set aside the fact that the program is still shorthanded due to scholarship reductions, it seems like there are multiple players getting hurt every time they take the field. Schad mentioned the Trojans may turn to four walk-on wide receivers to haul in passes from Cody Kessler this weekend.

Despite missing nearly two full games this season, Lee leads USC with 32 receptions and is second with 403 receiving yards.
