Despite not gaining a single yard since the first weekend of October, Jordon James remains UCLA’s leading rusher.
After nearly a month on the sidelines due to injury, the running back could be set to pad that lead. Maybe.
For the second straight day, James participated in practice as the Bruins prepare for Saturday’s game against Colorado. While no official decision has been made, head coach Jim Mora said the junior “looked pretty good” but will still be a game-time decision.
James suffered a severely sprained ankle — insert high-ankle here — in the Oct. 3 win over Utah.
With 463 yards and five rushing touchdowns, James is tops on the team even with missing three of seven games played. Paul Perkins is second among running backs with 331 and three.
