UCLA injury updates: Bruins get positive news ahead of bye week

The UCLA Bruins have been banged up through the first month of college football, but as the calendar flips to October, multiple players are returning.

According to the Los Angeles Times’ UCLA beat reporter Ben Bolch, head coach Jim Mora said four injured Bruins should be good to go once UCLA returns to action after their bye week.

Graduate senior offensive lineman Sunny Odogwu (multiple injuries), freshman defensive lineman Jaelan Phillips (ankle), sophomore linebacker Lokeni Toailoa (undisclosed) and senior offensive lineman Najee Toran (leg) should all be good to go when the Bruins face Arizona on Oct. 14. In addition, redshirt sophomore DeChaun Holiday (shoulder) has a chance to be able to play against the Wildcats. But Bolch reported that redshirt freshman linebacker Breland Brandt doesn’t appear likely to play.

UCLA has a bye this week before traveling to Tucson next Saturday to take on the Wildcats. The game will be played at 6 p.m. PT and shown on the Pac-12 Network.
