08:21 AM ET 09.14 | While it wasn't exactly begging for forgiveness, Lane Kiffin offered an apology Thursday for USC's suspension of a Los Angeles Daily News reporter. [The reporter] was banned from practice and games for two weeks after reporting kicker Andre Heidari had undergone knee surgery and would be out three weeks. The suspension was lifted Wednesday as an agreement is being worked out between the school's athletic department and editors from The Orange County Register, Los Angeles Times and Daily News on what can be reported from in-season practices. "There's not necessarily a right or wrong," Kiffin said. "The editors and our people are gong to try and get together so you people can do your job the best you can and also for us not (to compromise) a competitive advantage."
