UCLA Coach Jim Mora isn't counting out linebacker Eric Kendricks for this week's game against Colorado.

Kendricks, the Bruins' leading tackler, suffered a shoulder injury against Oregon Saturday. It was added to the list.

Kendricks' ankle is still sore from surgery this past summer. His back still aches from a hit he absorbed against Stanford on Oct. 19. Now comes a shoulder injury.

"Eric goes into the training room and it's like the old Operation game," Mora said. "He lies there on the table and they just pick him apart."
