When the UCLA Bruins face USC this week, they will be without starting offensive tackle Simon Goines. As head coach Jim Mora met with the media on Sunday following the Bruins' tough loss to Arizona State, he said Goines underwent surgery earlier in the day to fix a broken bone in his lower leg.
Goines posted this on Instagram following his surgery, appearing to be in pretty good spirits.
The Bruins were already relying on youth up front, and the loss of Goines will only make things tougher on Saturday against a red-hot USC squad. With so many injuries along the line, Devon Kennard and the Trojans' pass rushers could be in for a big day at the Coliseum.
