USC's Mays leaves game with leg injury

Posted by ESPN.com's Adam Rittenberg

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Taylor Mays, USC's standout safety, has sustained a right leg injury -- a potentially huge blow for the Trojans.

Mays got hurt trying to tackle Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor near the Trojans sideline. He returned for the next play but then went down and hobbled off the field.

Ohio State just took advantage, as Pryor again looked to the middle of the field and found DeVier Posey over the top. He'll continue to attack that area as long as Mays is out.
