UCLA left tackle Conor McDermott out with knee injury against Cal

UCLA’s starting left tackle Conor McDermott is out with a sprained knee for the Bruins’ 6 p.m. kickoff against Cal.

Head coach Jim Mora had ruled the redshirt junior had been ruled “very questionable” to play earlier this week. McDermott had practiced sparingly leading up to Thursday, leaving each practice early to receive treatment.

Redshirt freshman Kolton Miller is in line for his first career start in McDermott’s stead. Starting right guard Alex Redmond, who suffered a hand injury at Stanford last week, is also ready to play.

Outside linebacker Deon Hollins (knee) was dressed for warm-ups as well, but backup running back Nate Starks (head) was not.

McDermott went down during Monday night’s practice, but walked off the field without a significant limp.
