USC Trojans star wide receiver Marqise Lee went down in the fourth quarter of Saturday evening's Pac-12 showdown with Arizona State with a left knee injury.

Lee's status moving forward does not look good, as he was unable to leave the field under his own power after his knee was twisted on a punt return:

Marqise Lee had to be helped off the field. Could not put any pressure on his left leg.

He did not play in Week 7 against Arizona. He started in Week 8, but left the game early after re-aggravating his knee. He has been ruled out for Week 9. He is probable for Week 10 vs Oregon State.
