LOS ANGELES -- Southern California coach Lane Kiffin says wide receiver Marqise Lee has a bone bruise in the area around his right shoulder and is considered day to day.

"We expect him back soon," Kiffin said after practice Saturday night. "It was definitely great news to hear."

The All-American was banged up Friday at practice and missed the Trojans' morning practice Saturday. He was back for the evening session, though without pads.

Lee was hurt attempting to catch a long pass from Cody Kessler in coverage during Friday's workouts. He stayed down on the field before USC's medical staff escorted him away.

Lee had 118 receptions for 1,721 yards and 14 touchdowns last year as a sophomore, winning the Biletnikoff Award as the nation's top receiver. He also was the Pac-12's offensive player of the year.

USC has already lost two wide receivers for the season. George Farmer injured his knee during spring practice and freshman Steven Mitchell was hurt in June during a voluntary workout with teammates.

Information from The Associated Press and WeAreSC's Garry Paskwietz was used in this report.
