USC safety Kevin Ellison tore cartilage in his right knee during Thursday's practice and will have arthroscopic surgery early next week, according to a release from the sports information office.
He will be out for two to four weeks. Will Harris will start for him Saturday against Washington.
Ellison, a senior, has been the most consistent performer on the nation's best defense this season.
