Tight end Bryce Dixon's status for UCLA game remains uncertain

USC tight end Bryce Dixon's status for game against UCLA uncertain despite practicing this week

USC tight end Bryce Dixon is practicing this week, but his status for Saturday’s game against UCLA remains uncertain.

Dixon, a freshman, was suspended for last Thursday’s game against California. Coach Steve Sarkisian said after the game that Dixon did not play because of an unspecified “student conduct issue.”

Dixon was not made available to reporters after Tuesday’s practice.

Sarkisian said Dixon’s situation was “ongoing” and “in the university’s hands.”

“They have given him the green light to practice, which is a positive, so we’ll see where it goes,” he said

Asked whether Dixon would be eligible to play Saturday, Sarkisian said, “I don’t know yet.”

Dixon has six receptions, three for touchdowns.

If he is held out again, senior Randall Telfer would be the Trojans’ only scholarship tight end.
