USC receiver Marqise Lee appeared to be injured in the fourth quarter of the ASU-USC game, twisting his left knee after a punt return.
He was visibly in pain before the play had even finished and surrounded by his teammates on the field while he was down. The junior then left the game and was helped onto a training table, where he held a towel over his face. After an examination, he was carted off the field. According to ESPN, he smiled on his way off the field.
Lee is a huge part of USC's offense, despite how bad it has already been this season. The 6'0 junior is widely considered one of the most talented receivers in the country and is likely to be a high draft pick in the upcoming NFL draft. He came into tonight's game with 293 receiving yards and a touchdown under his belt.
Losing Lee would only further weaken an already anemic passing attack that ranks near the bottom of the country.
De'Von Flournoy has been out of this game also, so USC now has 2 healthy scholarship WRs: Agholor and Blackwell.— Rich Hammond (@RegisterUSC) September 29, 2013
