USC's plan to use cornerback Daylon McCutcheon on offense occasionally has been shelved.
"Being a great corner is really hard," Coach John Robinson said. "Being a great anything is really hard. I don't want him to get out of focus."
McCutcheon still will return kickoffs, but he won't be used as an occasional slotback, as was the plan in the spring.
"If we lost someone to injuries, maybe," Robinson said, adding that receivers such as R. Jay Soward or freshman Rod Perry, the son of the former Ram of the same name, could fill the role instead.
