UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley injured his left elbow on a scramble during the first quarter of the Bruins’ Saturday game against Texas.
The redshirt junior landed awkwardly at the end of an 11-yard run with just under five minutes left in quarter, putting his weight on his left arm. Trainers examined his left elbow, rubbing it with a salve. A UCLA spokesperson announced that Hundley’s return to the game is “probable.”
(UPDATE: Shortly before the start of the second half, Hundley’s return was ruled “very doubtful.” He was on the sideline with his elbow wrapped.)
Subbing in redshirt sophomore Jerry Neuheisel, the Bruins mustered a scoring drive immediately after the exit of their star quarterback. But after Ka’imi Fairbairn’s 47-yard field goal, UCLA gained just four yards on six plays on their next drive — one that ended with a sack.
