USC’s Lloyd out as Trojans host No
Paolo Uggetti, ESPNNov 4, 2023, 07:36 PM ET LOS ANGELES, Calif.– USC starting running back MarShawn Lloyd is out for an undefined reason for the team’s match versus No. 5 Washington Saturday.Lloyd was not present
throughout pregame warmups with the rest of the running backs. The South Carolina transfer has 766 rushing yards and 8 goals for the Trojans this season as well as 157 receiving lawns on the season and has actually been an important part of USC’s offense. Before kickoff, he was seen going out of the tunnel in street clothes and with a slight limp.Senior Austin Jones, who moved to USC from Stanford last season, will likely assume a majority of the carries. Jones has 258 rushing backyards this season as well as five touchdowns.Editor’s Picks Sophomore Raleek Brown, who was transferred to pass receiver from running back ahead of this season however has not
seen any action because the season opener, was dressed and heating up with the running backs prior to the game.Brown was a highly-touted, five-star hire who transferred from Oklahoma after head coach Lincoln Riley left the Sooners for USC. In his freshman season at USC, Brown collected 227 rushing yards and three touchdowns while showing flashes of explosive offensive potential on several celebrations.
