USC will be without wide receiver Marqise Lee when the Trojans play Utah on Saturday. ESPN's Joe Schad reports that Lee will not play against the Utes because of a lingering injury in his left knee. Lee, last season's Biletnikoff Award winner, first injured his knee against Arizona State on Sept. 28.
Lee missed USC's 38-31 win over Arizona on Oct. 10, but he returned last week in a 14-10 loss to Notre Dame, a game in which he tweaked his injured knee and missed the entire second half. On the season, Lee has caught 32 passes for 403 yards and one touchdown.
