UCLA's Andrews, Taua sustain season-ending injuries

Nov 6, 2017 - 7:20 PM UCLA leading receiver Darren Andrews sustained a torn ACL on a non-contact play in the fourth quarter against Utah, one of two season-ending injuries suffered by the Bruins on Saturday.

Junior defensive lineman Ainuu Taua tore his ACL and MCL, also dislocating a knee cap, on a kick return.

Andrews, a senior, ends his season with 60 catches for 773 yards and 10 touchdowns. He had three catches for 66 yards and a score in the 48-17 loss to the Utes.

"I think he was one of the most productive receivers in the country," UCLA offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch said in a press conference. "He was having a good game again. Unfortunately, that's just the way this game goes."

Taua had seven tackles this season for UCLA (4-5, 2-4 Pac-12), which hosts Arizona State on Saturday.

Quarterback Josh Rosen missed the Utah game because of a concussion but is likely to play against the Sun Devils.
