USC head coach Lane Kiffin has reportedly banned an LA Daily News reporter from his team's practices for two weeks.
Last weekend the reporter, Scott Wolf, wrote that USC kicker Andre Heidari suffered a torn meniscus in his knee and had surgery to repair the damage.
USC head coach Lane Kiffin returned to the team in 2010 after stints at Tennessee and the NFL's Oakland Raiders.
Now Wolf is not allowed to attend Trojan practices for two weeks, and cannot cover the team in their Sept. 22 home opener against California, according to the Big Lead.
This comes on the heels of an LA Times report in August, that stated Kiffin had barred any media from reporting strategy or injury details viewed during practices.
The No. 2 ranked Trojans begin Pac-12 conference play Saturday at Stanford, and Wolf should be able to cover the team on the road since USC cannot ban a reporter from an opposing team's press box, reported the Big Lead.
After two games so far, Kiffin and his Trojans have been on a tear, lighting up Hawaii 49-10 to start the season, and smashing Syracuse 42-29.
