UCLA lost one of its top defensive players Tuesday, as defensive end Datone Jones broke his foot in practice.

Jones will be lost to the Bruins until at least October, Coach Rick Neuheisel said. Jones was injured during individual drills. He had 30 tackles, including five for a loss, and four sacks last season.


Neuheisel said that Nate Chandler would probably fill Jones’ spot in the opener against Kansas State on Sept. 4. Chandler moved from tight end to defensive tackle in the spring.
