Sean Sheller out with arm injury
By Peter Yoon
UCLA offensive lineman Sean Sheller has a right arm injury and will not return to Saturday's game against Texas.
Sheller, a sixth-year senior and a starting guard, was injured on a running play near the goal line late in the third quarter. UCLA was trailing, 35-13 at the time, but scored two plays later to make it 35-20.
Sheller has already missed two full seasons with injuries. He had a medial collateral ligament tear in his right knee in 2006 and had anterior and medial collateral ligament surgery in 2008 after an off-road vehicle accident.
The NCAA granted Sheller a sixth year of eligibility that allowed him to play this season.
Also, defensive back Andrew Abbott suffered a concussion on a hit to the head in the second quarter. He also will not return.
