The 14-10 loss to Notre Dame took it's toll on the Trojans.

USC is now 4-3 this season, 1-1 under interim head coach Ed Orgeron and they will go into Saturday's game hosting Utah without a few key players.

Orgeron announced Sunday during his weekly teleconference that both tight ends Xavier Grimble and Randall Telfer will be unavailable to play Saturday against the Utes.

That means the only tight end available will be sophomore Jalen Cope-Fitzpatrick.

Also out for the game will be freshman tailback Justin Davis.

Davis was helped off the field at the end of the game against Notre Dame by special teams coach John Baxter and a trainer. He later left the stadium on crutches and with a boot on his right foot.

Orgeron called Marqise Lee questionable for Saturday. He sat out the second half against Notre Dame.

Expected to return for the Trojans is tailback Tre Madden.
