USC announced on Tuesday night that suspended cornerback Josh Shaw has been reinstated to the team. Per ESPN:

"I've welcomed Josh Shaw back to the team," Sarkisian said in a statement Tuesday. "I'm now in the process of evaluating how Josh can contribute to the team's success."

Kevon Seymour and Adoree' Jackson were listed as the Trojans' starting cornerbacks on this week's depth chart.

Shaw, a fifth-year senior, was voted a team captain before the season. However, Sarkisian told reporters after Tuesday's practice that he is removing Shaw as a captain.

Shaw had been suspended since late August, when he fabricated a story to explain how he suffered two high ankle sprains as a result of jumping from the balcony of his third-story apartment following an argument with his girlfriend. He initially -- and repeatedly -- told USC officials the injury occurred as a result of a leap from a balcony in an effort to save his drowning nephew. That story was shared on USC's website and quickly became a national story before Shaw admitted he had made it up.
No. 19 USC plays at No. 9 UCLA on Saturday and the Trojans are still in contention to win the Pac-12 South.
