Former USC redshirt senior RB/DB D.J. Morgan said he has not retired from football, and still has NFL aspirations.
He has an odd way of showing it. Morgan has not played since 2012 due to injuries. "I realize I still have a lot left in me," Morgan said. "I haven’t played in a while and I just want to get my body back." He finished his Trojan career with only 364 yards rushing and a touchdown. The No. 68 overall recruit in the 2010 class was moved to defensive back in summer camp. He left the team earlier this week. "We’re wishing him the best of luck," head coach Steve Sarkisian said.

USC sophomore RB D.J. Morgan will likely see more snaps int he coming weeks due to injuries to top backs Curtis McNeal and junior Silas Redd.

Morgan has already gone through quite a bit this season after recovering from a minor knee surgery in September that kept him sidelined for three weeks. In a limited role last week, he rushed for 46 yards on nine carries. "We have great confidence that he is fully back and that he can do everything," head coach oach Lane Kiffin said. "He knows all our stuff and, if need be, could be an every-down back."

USC sophomore RB D.J. Morgan will miss the next 3-4 weeks after undergoing minor knee surgery.

Morgan, who spent some time with the Trojans track team, has been lining up as the program's third string running back. With Curtis McNeal and Silas Redd topping the depth chart, USC can afford to lose Morgan for a few weeks.

His work with the USC track team has D.J. Morgan ready and running this spring.

Morgan ran for 70 yards in last season's opener against Minnesota, but he had less than 100 yards the rest of the schedule. A major reason for his lack of playing time was his inability to hold onto the football. With Morgan among only three scholarship running backs, the Trojans need help. So far this spring, the sophomore-to-be is demonstrating he can be part of the answer.
