Marqise Lee’s injury? Just a bone bruise

Colorado v USC Getty Images

USC received a scare on Friday when star receiver Marqise Lee had to be carted off the field and was later seen sporting a sling after landing awkwardly on his shoulder.

The good news for the Trojans is that Lee’s injury is nothing more than a bone bruise in his right shoulder. He’s currently listed as day to day and should be back to practicing at full speed soon. Lee missed both practices Saturday, though he was in uniform for the latter (but no pads).

“We’ve still got to get him a lot of work,” Lane Kiffin said Saturday evening. “We’ve got to make sure that we’re not relying on his athletic ability to take over and that we’re still putting him in a lot of situations so he can continue to improve as a receiver.”

Lee, the returning Biletnikoff Award winner and All-American, led all Trojans receivers in 2012 with over 1,700 yards and 14 touchdowns.

    Just a bone bruise? I had what doc’s called a severe Bone bruise back in January and Doc’s said would be a couple months. I ended up missing so much time I lost my job. It hurt more then when I lacerated my liver and was bleeding internally. I finished the remaining 5+ hours of school that day before going home. Not telling anyone about my liver. Then went to school again the next day while bleeding internally. Passed out twice from the internal bleeding before going to the hospital. Tried to leave the hospital for 5 days just to go to school and play sports. They had to restrain me to keep me in the hospital. That Bone Bruise though, I could not get out of bed. I could not breathe. I could not sleep. They gave me major pain killers and it still barely helped. I know they said mine was a major bruise but don’t say “Just” when talking about injury’s.
