LOS ANGELES The USC Trojans returned to the practice field on Tuesday after a 10-day layoff for spring break.
Max Wittek returned to practice after missing the team's previous three practices with a knee injury. He admitted he battled a little bit of rust.
Not on the field Tuesday for the fourth straight practice was All-American wide receiver Marqise Lee.
Lee injured his knee during practice before the Trojans first scrimmage of the spring at the Coliseum 17 days ago.
Head coach Lane Kiffin and the USC medical staff has been extremely cautious with Lee this spring and for good reason. In 2012, Lee became the first Biletnikoff Award winner in school history after catching 118 passes for 1,721 yards and 14 touchdowns.
Hes yet to be cleared to return to practice but Lee feels like he's healthy enough to be on the field.
All was not lost for Lee on Tuesday. Earlier in the day, he cemented himself in Trojan lore.
He hung a plaque of himself on the Trojan All-American Walk...
