Southern California's run to a national championship has taken an early hit.

According to a report by ESPNLosAngeles.com's Pedro Moura, starting defensive end Devon Kennard tore a pectoral muscle lifting weights and will require surgery in the next week.

The report states Kennard is expected to be out 2-3 months, but ultimately he could miss the entire 2012 season and redshirt, making him a fifth-year senior in 2013.
