Marqise Lee injury: USC WR will play in Sun Bowl

Richard Mackson-US PRESSWIRE

The All-American wide receiver Lee will suit up for the Trojans, unhindered by a knee injury suffered in practice over the weekend.

The USC Trojans got good news on Monday as their All-American wide receiver and best player Marqise Lee will play in the Sun Bowl, the school announced before their game against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets.

USC got a scare over the weekend when Lee crumpled to the ground in practice with a knee injury, and was limping at times, but the injury wasn't enough to keep him out of the Trojans' first bowl game since 2009.

Lee set USC and Pac-12 records in 2012 with 112 catches for 1,680 yards, including 14 receiving touchdowns. He and teammate Robert Woods (73 catches, 813 yards, 11 touchdowns) combine to form the most prolific receiver duo in school history.

In addition to Lee, the Trojans will also have tailback Curtis McNeal available to play, the school announced. McNeal rushed for 696 yards this season and averaged 6.2 yards per carry. Silas Redd, who rushed for 817 yards and 5.4 yards per carry, will start at tailback for USC.
