Bryce Dixon dressed for practice as Trojans prepare for UCLA

USC freshman tight end Bryce Dixon returns to practice after a suspension from the game against California

USC tight end Bryce Dixon, who was suspended from last week’s game against California, was dressed for practice Monday as USC began preparations for Saturday’s game against UCLA.

Dixon, a freshman, did not attend the Cal game because of an unspecified “student conduct issue,” Coach Steve Sarkisian said after the Trojans’ 38-30 victory.

Monday's practice was closed to the media. Coaches and players are not made available to reporters on Mondays.

USC players had been off since Friday, so Monday’s full-pads workout was an extra practice for the Trojans, who followed a similar schedule going into the Cal game after an open date.

Linebacker J.R. Tavai, sidelined since suffering a knee sprain against Utah on Oct. 25, also returned to practice.

The Trojans’ game against UCLA at the Rose Bowl kicks off at 5 p.m.
