Ryan Young of has reported that USC Football Defensive Lineman Korey Foreman missed at least all three of the fall camp practices open to the media this week. Some more information and background on the situation was revealed to the media after practice today, after Foreman was seen not in full-pads:

Riley said that he does expect him back within the next few days, and that the health issue is nothing too serious. While he talked about how it's important for everyone on the team to be practicing consistently, he added that "he's been developing and been on a great track." So, his injury seems to be minor and he seems to have been getting better this offseason.

It's also known that him missing practice on Monday wasn't even injury-related, but due to a prior commitment. He'll be fine, and most certainly ready to go for the season. It's good news, as it's a massive season for Foreman.

After posting 11 tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss, and 2.5 sacks in his true freshman season last year, there is a bit of pressure to perform now that he's entering his second year.

Korey Foreman has unlimited potential for USC football this season and beyond.

Not only was USC Football No. 1 2021 recruit--Korey Foreman--the No. 2 overall player in the country (all recruiting ratings and rankings in article are as of 247Sports), but he was also the No. 12 recruit in 247Sports history. That's how amazing of a talent Foreman is. The 6-5, 265 lb five-star is likely the No. 1 X-factor within this 2022 Trojans defense due to how high his ceiling can truly go.

The No. 1 D-Lineman in the country for his 2021 recruiting class, everyone wants him on their team. He wasn't given the chance to develop under horrendous Defensive Coordinator Todd Orlando last year, but one doesn't just lose talent--especially when they are as talented as Foreman.

The '21 class was exceptional for USC, and was ranked No. 7 in the nation. Now, it's time for their best recruit in that elite class to play up to his potential. If he continues to stay healthy, he has more than enough of a chance to reach the heights he's capable of.
