USC All-American wide receiver Marqise Lee will not play in Saturday's game against Utah because of a left knee injury, reports ESPN.com.
The injury-depleted team will be without its top three tight ends and are preparing to play numerous walk-ons at wide receiver.
Lee aggravated the knee during the USC's loss to Notre Dame.
Lee suffered the injury returning a punt against Arizona State on Sept. 28 and did not play in USC's victory over Arizona on Oct. 10. He has 32 receptions for 403 yards and one touchdown for the Trojans (4-3) this season.
"I'm just trying to work through it," he said to the Los Angeles Times, adding that receivers coach Tee Martin, "keeps telling me to 'stay in a positive mindset and lead the team whether you play or not.' "That's what I'm trying to do."
