PLAYERS: Matt BarkleyLane Kiffin
TEAMS: USC Trojans

Via NESN:

As USC fell to UCLA and lost control of the Pac-12 South, the Trojans might also have seen the end of Matt Barkley’s career.

Barkley left the game late in the fourth quarter after UCLA linebacker Anthony Barr drove Barkley’s right shoulder into the ground. He was seen leaving the locker room with his right arm tucked across his torso inside his track suit. Scott Wolf of the Los Angeles Daily News reports Barkley might have suffered a separated shoulder.

USC came into the year with national title hopes, and Barkley came into the year with No. 1 overall pick hype. Both have diminished as the season has progressed. USC stands at 7-4 after another down season under Lane Kiffin, and Barkley was seeing his draft stock slip even before his shoulder injury.
