USC defensive end Romello Hyde, who transferred from Auburn this offseason, will miss the rest of the season after undergoing a shoulder procedure, head coach Lincoln Riley announced Thursday.
“It’s going to be a long recovery,” Riley said.
Hyde suffered the injury during USC’s 41-28 win over Stanford in Week 2. He left the game and was later seen with his arm in a sling. The injury leaves the Trojans at a critical position after Altitude won fall camp after arriving at USC in January.
