UCLA running back Jordon James and linebacker Eric Kendricks are both game-time decisions against Colorado this Saturday, head coach Jim Mora said.
James has missed three full games since spraining his ankle in a 34-27 win at Utah on Oct. 3. The junior entered that game as the nation’s fifth-leading rusher.
Kendricks, who leads the team with 65 tackles, needed an anesthetic shot to play through a back bruise at Oregon last week. He left that game with a mild shoulder sprain, and also has a sore ankle.
Left tackle Simon Goines (knee) and backup Conor McDermott (shoulder) are not expected to play. Running back Steve Manfro is in a boot after spraining his ankle against the Ducks, and did not practice all week.
