UCLA senior quarterback Ben Olson will have surgery on Tuesday on his right foot. Olson suffered a fracture to the fifth metatarsal of his right foot during Saturday's practice and x-rays on Sunday confirmed the fracture. He will have a new screw inserted in his right foot to aid the healing process. It is expected he will be sidelined approximately eight weeks.

"It's a crushing blow to the young man," head coach Rick Neuheisel said. "He put so much time and effort into the program, it's just really unfortunate. Sometimes you have a hard time understanding why things happen.

"Hopefully, his healing and rehab will go well and we'll get him back in the fold in early October."
