USC LB Don Hill, who was implicated in a sexual assault allegation against fellow Trojans LB Osa Masani, will not play against Alabama this weekend.
The L.A. Times’ Zach Helfand reported that Hill was sent home from Texas on Friday for “a violation of team rules,” which was the reason given for Masani’s suspension as well. Neither player has been charged with a crime.
USC spokesman says Don Hill was sent home from Dallas today for a violation of team rules.

The woman who accused Masani of assaulting her said the alleged assault took place in Hill’s apartment. She said that Masani drugged her and that he and Hill both assaulted her at the same time while she was impaired.
The victim claims Masani recorded the incident on his phone and sent it via Snapchat to her ex-boyfriend, a football player at Arizona.
USC plays Alabama at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, on Saturday at 8 p.m. ET.
