UCLA LB out for 2012 with torn ACL


The primary goals of any coach during spring practices is to shake off the rust, learn the schemes and stay healthy.¬†Unfortunately for new UCLA coach Jim Mora, he’s lost one of his players for the latter reason.

Mora confirmed on Saturday that linebacker Isaiah Bowens would miss the 2012 with a torn ACL, which he suffered last week during practice when a helmet collided with his knee (eek).

“It’s a bad deal,” Mora said. “That’s a big loss for us and you just feel for the kid. He was making progress and working hard and it’s tough that had to happen.

“It’s part of the game, but it’s a part you don’t like.”

The redshirt junior saw action in 12 games last season, but mostly contributed on special teams.

The Bruins’ spring game is next Saturday.

    I’m a USC fan, but never would wish something like this to happen. Hope the guy recovers fully for 2013. Would love for the USC-UCLA rivalry to be restored.

    Never felt Neuheisal could get job done. Part of me is scared because I think Mora can. Fight On! Go Pac 12!
