UCLA vs. Arizona, Injury Report: Bruins Thin Secondary Still Struggling With Injury

The UCLA Bruins are coming off their bye week this Thursday to take on the Arizona Wildcats, but may be without a number of key players on both sides of the ball, especially in the Bruins secondary. 

Cornerback Sheldon Price is questionable for Thursday's contest with a sprained right knee, leaving him limited in practice this week. He hasn't suited up the last two weeks with the Bruins and isn't looking like he'll be playing against the Wildcats. Another starting member of UCLA's secondary, strong safety Tony Dye, is listed as probable after dealing with a neck injury that left him out of the last three games. Dye was cleared for practice earlier this week by Coach Neuheisel and will be a welcome sight to an already dilapidated Bruins secondary. 

Kicker Kip Smith is listed as questionable with a hip flexor issue, keeping him out of the last four games for the Bruins. Junior punter Jeff Locke had be filling in for the redshirt freshman, but missed three extra point attempts. Hopefully Smith can get healthy in a hurry. Right guard Chris Ward is also listed as questionable after injuring hus shoulder against Stanford a few weeks back. Ward has started only seven contests in his two years at UCLA so far.
