UCLA linebacker Steve Sloan returned to practice Thursday after getting an MRI on his knee Wednesday. Rick Neuheisel said there’s a bone fragment in there, which he’ll play through. There’s a chance it won’t be a problem, but it’s possible he would need to have a medical procedure at some point this season, too.
Neuheisel is unsure if defensive back Dalton Hilliard (shoulder) will make the Cal trip. He’s doubtful, and receiver Nelson Rosario (ankle) is doubtful, too.
The Bruins didn’t use crowd noise this week in preparation for Cal.
