USC starting quarterback Mark Sanchez was carted off the field at Friday's practice in Los Angeles with a dislocated kneecap.

Mark Sanchez won the Trojans' starting position this spring over Arkansas transfer Mitch Mustain.

Sanchez's knee will be immobilized over the weekend and he will start rehab on Monday, USC sports information said in a release. He is listed as day-to-day. "Mark dislocated his kneecap," USC coach Pete Carrol said. "They put it back in [on the field]. There are no other complications. It's a day-to-day deal. We'll wait and see. He's real encouraged and the doctors are, too.

"On the other side of this, it's an extraordinary opportunity for the other quarterbacks to jump in and fight for the job. "

Sanchez collapsed to the ground in obvious pain before the Trojans began stretching drills.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Sanchez was doing a footwork drill before throwing a pass, putting weight on his left knee and falling to the ground. He was later wheeled off the field on a stretcher before undergoing X-rays.

"I landed awkwardly when throwing," Sanchez said. "[The dislocation] is pretty clean. Nothing torn and no cartilage problems. It's the best case scenario.


"I feel good about the other guys being able to fill in. It'll be a seamless transition. They'll do well."It was scary, frightening at first. The way they say these things happen, it could be a lot worse. It just hurt a lot when it happened, but it feels better now."

With starter John David Booty injured last season, Sanchez played seven games and started three, completing 60.5 percent of his passes (69 of 114) for 695 yards. He threw seven touchdowns with five interceptions.

Sanchez, a 6-foot-3, 225-pound junior, won the starting job this spring over 2006 Arkansas transfer Mitch Mustain.

Mustain transferred from the Razorbacks after the 2006 season amid controversy surrounding Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt, who resigned from Arkansas after the 2007 season.

The Trojans were ranked second in last week's USA Today preseason coaching poll behind the Georgia Bulldogs.

Information from ESPN.com college football writer Joe Schad was used in this report.

Good news is that nothing is torn. It was just a clean dislocation. Said he could be back Monday for practice. Good chance for Mustain to get some reps in and get more experience in case Mark is not back by the opener.

Fight on Mark!

Hope everything heals right. Not an SC fan by any means, but I really like Sanchez.

Bynum's was a Subluxation. Basically, the kneecap popped out then popped back in on it's own. This means that not only was Bynum's cartilage weak enough to let the knee cap out, but it was weak enough to let it back in, thus requiring much more rehab.

I'd say so.
Just a routine dislocation.

the night stalker....

:lol:

Good news that it wasn't worse than it could've been. I've always liked Mark & not just cuz he's Chicano, though that's a big reason why.. haha.

It was cool though seeing his special on Sportscenter as well as ESPN the magazine in the article where he talked about how much influence he has over people and how much responsibility, particularly with the latin community. I'm glad that he aknowledges his heritage, is proud of what he is, and is trying hard to set an example and have an impact on a lot of struggling youth out there.

I also remember last year, there was a case in which he wore a Mexican flag mouthguard, I think maybe more than once and there was somewhat of a controversy about it. I thought it was ridiculous how some people took it the wrong way and am glad he did it. Get better Senor Sanchez and fight on!
