Marqise Lee listed as questionable for Utah game

Well, after the spate of injuries that continue to slam head-first into USC’s roster, of course he is.

Coming on the heels of season-ending injuries to their second-leading rusher and a starting linebacker, Marqise Lee is listed as questionable for Saturday’s game against Utah. Thus far this week, the junior has been held out of practice.

The 2012 All-American, an immense talent who’s become a sad symbol of a lost 2013 season in the Land of Troy, aggravated a lingering knee injury in the loss to Notre Dame this past weekend. Lee originally suffered the injury in a late-September loss to Arizona State returning a punt.

The injury kept him from playing in the Oct. 10 win against Arizona.

Last season, Lee caught 118 passes for 1,721 yards and 14 touchdowns as a consensus and unanimous All-American. As a true freshman in 2011, Lee was at 73-1143-11 as a consensus and unanimous freshman All-American.

This season, through Week 8, Lee has 32 receptions for 403 yards and a touchdown as he — and the entire offense — has been hit with a one-two punch when it comes to production: a new starting quarterback and the firing of a head coach the first month of the season.

    Along with presiding over a decade of cheating at Miami and then hammering the Trojans for the ‘lack of institutional control” that he took to an entirely new level, this is Paul Dee’s legacy. Thanks again, NCAA.

    Just lost our 3rd TE Cope Fitzpatrick too. No scholarship tight ends available on Saturday.
