Torian White injury: Starting UCLA OT out with broken ankle

Bad news for the Bruins, who lose a key contributor on the offensive line.

UCLA escaped Salt Lake City with a 34-27 win over Utah Thursday night, improving to 4-0 on the season with a win in their Pac-12 opener.

The Bruins suffered a big loss, however, as starting right tackle Torian White received an injury during the game.

White started all 14 games for the Bruins as a redshirt freshman in 2012, and was a recruiting coup for UCLA over rival USC.

Redshirt sophomore Ben Wysocki was listed as White's back-up at right tackle for the Utah game, and UCLA will likely bump him up to a starting role, although another current starter could come in to play.

Su'a-Filo's backup at left guard is true freshman Kenny Lacy, so it will be interesting to see how the Bruins decide to handle their new offensive line rotation.

Another option for the Bruins is one of the two players in their right guard rotation -- Caleb Benenoch or Alex Redmond. The two have been listed as co-starters, and one could be pushed outside.
