UCLA has already lost one of its top offensive linemen to a season-ending ankle injury.  While not as serious, one of the Bruins’ top producers on offense is dealing with an ankle issue of his own.

Running back Jordon James suffered a severely sprained ankle in the win over Utah Thursday night.  While X-rays showed no broken bones, James is listed as doubtful for next Saturday’s game against Cal.

“The X-rays were negative, and he’s wearing a [protective] boot to take the pressure off,” head coach Jim Mora said. “He is doubtful this week, but I wouldn’t rule him out. You never know how these things respond and it helps we have a couple extra days.”

James’ 463 yards rushing and five touchdowns leads the Bruins.  Entering Week 5, the junior was T-16th in the country averaging 115.8 yards per game.
