LOS ANGELES, Sept. 23 (UPI) -- Top-ranked Southern California starting cornerback Shareece Wright reportedly has a hairline fracture in one of his vertebrae and could miss six weeks.

Wright sustained the injury in USC's 35-3 win over Ohio State Sept. 13, but didn't get the current diagnosis until after tests Monday, the Los Angeles Times reported Tuesday.

Trojans Coach Pete Carroll said Wright could miss six weeks.

The Times reported senior Josh Pinkard will start for Southern Cal Thursday against Oregon State in the team's Pac-10 opener.
