Cornerback Brandon Sermons breaks femur

Sophomore cornerback Brandon Sermons broke his femur during individual drills Saturday, coach Rick Neuheisel said after the team's first full-pads practice.

According to Jon Gold of the Los Angeles Daily News, Sermons was in good spirits as he was carted off the field and taken away in an ambulance. Sermons played in nine games as a freshman last season, mostly on special teams.

There was no timetable set for his return, but he is slated to have surgery soon.
