UCLA linebacker Eric Kendricks will have ankle surgery Friday, leaving the Bruins without their leading tackler against Virginia Tech in the Hyundai Sun Bowl.

Kendricks had ankle surgery last summer, which slowed him during training camp. During the season, he battled through back and shoulder injuries. He led the team with 106 tackles, which was the third-most in the Pac-12.
