USC will be even more shorthanded on defense Saturday against Alabama. According to multiple outlets, Trojans defensive end/outside linebacker Don Hill was sent home from Dallas on Friday for what is officially being called a “violation of team rules.”

However, Hill was named by TMZ in a rape case that allegedly involves fellow USC linebacker Osa Masina.
Per a search warrant, a female victim says she was drugged with Xanax pills and given alcohol before being taken back to Hill’s apartment and raped by the two players. Reportedly, the act, which took place in mid-July, was recorded via video and photos by Masina, and sent to the woman’s ex-boyfriend, who is said to be a football player at Arizona.
Masina reportedly assaulted the woman again on July 26 in Utah.
Masina is already under investigation for the two separate sexual assault incidents and has been suspended for the opener against the Tide.
Hill — pictured, No. 59 — appeared in five games last season, recording seven tackles.
