The UCLA Bruins are gearing up for a crucial matchup against the Utah Utes, and the injury report is a topic of concern for both fans and the coaching staff. As the game approaches, the status of two key players, A. Kaho and T. Mokiao-Atimalala, hangs in the balance.
UCLA Bruins Injury Update Heading Into Utah Matchup
Ale Kaho – Linebacker (Questionable – Leg)
Ale. Kaho, a pivotal figure in the Bruins’ defensive unit, has been battling a right leg injury that kept him sidelined for the past two games, including last week’s dominant performance over NC Central. While his absence has been felt, UCLA’s coaching staff remains optimistic about his potential return. Kaho’s status is currently labeled as questionable, hopeful that he might make a comeback against Utah.
Kaho’s presence on the field is invaluable. His ability to read plays, stuff the run, and contribute in pass coverage adds a layer of versatility to the Bruins’ defense. The defense has been able to be one of the best in college football the first few weeks, but they’ve yet to face a ranked opponent. Should he be cleared to play, Kaho’s return could bolster UCLA’s efforts to stifle Utah’s offense and secure a vital victory.
Titus Mokiao-Atimalala – Wide Receiver (Questionable – Undisclosed)
Another player whose availability is up in the air for the matchup with Utah is Titus. Mokiao-Atimalala. He has missed the previous two games, including last week’s victory, due to an undisclosed issue, and the coaching staff has yet to provide clarity on the nature of his injury. Mokiao-Atimalala’s questionable status leaves his potential return hanging in the balance.
