The injuries are piling up this spring for Lane Kiffin and the USC Trojans. First it was star wide receiver Marqise Lee and QB Max Wittek going down with knee injuries earlier this spring.
Now another wideout, George Farmer, has suffered a devastating knee injury, tearing both his ACL and MCL. The injury will keep him out of the entire 2013-14 season for the Trojans.

Word out of Trojans spring camp is that Farmer had secured the No. 3 position behind Lee and Nelson Agholor. Farmer was the No. 1-ranked wide receiver in the class of 2011 and a loss of his talent is never easy to replace.
Adding insult to injury (literally), another USC player suffered a knee injury on Thursday, safety Su’a Cravens.

We are wishing all of the Trojans a safe recovery.
