The UCLA football program will be moving forward without one of star quarterback Josh Rosen’s favorite targets.
This weekend, tight end Caleb Wilson suffered a forefoot injury during the Bruins’ win over Colorado. Wilson’s injury will require surgery, according to Ben Bolch of the Los Angeles Times.
As a result, Wilson will miss the remainder of the 2017 college football season.

It’s a big loss for the Bruins.
Wilson is currently the team’s second-leading receiver with 38 catches for 490 yards and one touchdown on the year.
With Wilson now out of the lineup, there is a major drop in production for the Bruins at the position. The only other tight end on the depth chart to record more than one interception this season is redshirt junior Austin Roberts, who will likely get bumped into the starting lineup.
UCLA is currently on a bye week, before the team returns to the field on Saturday, Oct. 14 against Arizona on the road.
