USC coach Clay Helton said defensive end Porter Gustin fractured his ankle and will miss the rest of the season.
Gustin will have surgery this week and have a recovery time of about 3-4 months.
“Sad to say that Porter Gustin late in the game had an injury that caused an ankle fracture that will take him out the rest of the season,” Helton said. “He will have surgery this week to repair the fracture.”
Gustin got tied up with two blockers near the end of the game, Helton said.
“Obviously he’s saddened by it,” Helton said. “He handled it well. But we’re all come kind of numb right now.”
Gustin will now miss most of the past two seasons with injuries. He missed 10 games last season mainly because of a fractured toe. He will miss the final seven games of this season.
