UCLA receiver Mossi Johnson is out for the season after tearing multiple knee ligaments, head coach Jim Mora confirmed Sunday.
The sophomore made eight catches for 41 yards in the Bruins’ first three games, and also played sparingly at safety the past two weeks. Mora said Johnson tore his ACL, MCL and PCL during one-on-one drills last week, but wasn’t sure which knee the receiver injured.
The Crenshaw High grad tore ligaments in his left knee back in January 2013, which forced him to delay his enrollment at UCLA until the following year. He caught 23 passes for 232 yards and a touchdown as a freshman. Bruin Report Online first reported news of Johnson’s injury.
Johnson is the fourth player that UCLA has lost for the season, following defensive lineman Eddie Vanderdoes (ACL), linebacker Myles Jack (meniscus), and cornerback Fabian Moreau (foot).
