BREAKING: UCLA TE Caleb Wilson out for the season with foot injury

Caleb Wilson-UCLA-broken foot-out for season

The UCLA Bruins got some very bad news on Sunday, when it was reported that star tight end Caleb Wilson will miss the rest of the season with a foot injury.

The news was announced on Twitter by Ben Bolch of the Los Angeles Times:

Wilson was injured in Saturday’s game vs. Colorado. In that game, he had six catches for 65 yards.

Wilson, a 6-foot-4 sophomore from Dallas, had become one of Josh Rosen’s favorite targets for the 3-2 Bruins. In his first game this season vs. Texas A&M, Wilson erupted for 15 catches for 208 yards. Last week against Stanford, Wilson had 11 catches for 145 yards.

On the season, Wilson finished with 38 catches for 490 yards and one touchdown. Statistically, he was one of the best tight ends in the country, ranking second in both catches and yards for a tight end. Only NC State’s Jaylen Samuels had more catches and only UMass’s Adam Breneman had more yards.

Last week, Pro Football Focus listed Wilson as the best tight end in the nation.

Wilson tweeted that he’ll be back and better than ever on Sunday.

While Wilson’s loss will no doubt impact the Bruins, they have a deep tight end corps. Junior Austin Roberts will likely be the first in line to fill in for Wilson.
