LOS ANGELES (AP) -USC defensive lineman Armond Armstead is likely to be out six weeks after breaking his left foot in a morning practice.
Armstead, who will undergo surgery Friday, was hurt when a teammate stepped on his foot during drills. The 295-pound sophomore has been working out with the Trojans' first-team defense, and was expected to win a starting spot at defensive end.
Freshman Wes Horton replaced Armstead for much of the afternoon practice, but several players will be in competition for the spot.
The Trojans already lost presumptive starting defensive tackle Averell Spicer to a sprained ankle last week. USC must replace at least six starters in the defense's front seven this season, but injuries could slow the unit's progress.
