The UCLA Bruins suffered numerous injuries over the weekend to a couple of key players. With a Pac-12 matchup against the Colorado Buffaloes looming on Saturday, the coaching staff released updates on a couple of banged up starters.

Starting linebacker Jordan Zumwalt will not play this weekend. Zumwalt was involved in a scooter accident on Sunday night and suffered a gash on his forehead. He has not healed enough and will be inactive.

Starting guard Greg Capella is also out with a concussion. Capella did not attend practice on Thursday and could be out for at least another week.

In a bit of good news for the Bruins, senior guard Jeff Baca is likely to play. Baca suffered a concussion at the end of practice last week, and his status for the Colorado game was up in the air. Assuming he has no further setbacks, he is expected to suit up.

Kickoff from Colorado is scheduled for 3 p.m. PT on Saturday evening.
