USC commitment Jeffery lost for season

USC commitment DB Damario Jeffery (6-3 213) of Columbia will miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL in his left knee.

He'll have surgery Tuesday according to his coach, Kemper Amick.

"The USC doctors advised him not to play anymore," Amick said. "Our trainer feels he may have done it the week before (September 5th) against Dreher. He played all the Mid-Carolina game (September 12th) with a knee brace."

Amick said Jeffery had some swelling in the knee this week and an MRI Tuesday discovered the ligament tear. Jeffery still practiced Thursday before the decision was made to shut him down for the season.
