Marqise Lee aggravates injured shoulder in practice, but is okay to return

USC v UCLA Getty Images

USC wide receiver Marqise Lee now has the most closely watched shoulder in college football.

Just a couple of weeks after sustaining a bone bruise in his right arm, the returning Biletnikoff Award winner had another scare in practice on Wednesday. According to reports, Lee re-injured his shoulder when he dove for a ball and had to leave the field. His pads had to be removed without lifting his arm, and his shoulder iced down.

The good news is it doesn’t appear to be serious, at least according to Lane Kiffin. Lee apparently re-aggravated the injury and will be “fine.” Lee even told reporters after practice that, if he was playing a game, he would have stayed in.

But with the season less than two weeks away, it’ll be interesting to see if Lee’s shoulder continues to bother him at all.

    Why is this guy practicing with only 4 other scholarship receivers healthy for the season on the roster? He has nothing to prove would have been a top 10 pick last year as a true sophomore. Hope Kiffin knows what he is doing but his head coaching abilities seem real green to me.

    Kiffin is the worst head coach in the world

    Brian Kelly is second worst

    Lee has missed a lot of the offseason and no one, including him, is content with his performance last year. A lot of what he did was based off of physical ability and he has room to grow as a player.

    As easy as it would be to sit him out until games, it wouldn’t do him justice.

    With two young QB’s needing to work on their timing with the starts, I think it’s ultra important ML is practicing. Unfortunitly, He will be hurt all year. Injuries are part of the game. Kiffins just got to find away to minimize his exposure. Fight On! See you in Hawaii
