Matt Dickerson to have surgery on collarbone but could return this season

UCLA defensive lineman Matt Dickerson will undergo surgery Tuesday on his collarbone, which he injured during Saturday’s win over Oregon.

But the senior still has a chance to return this season, coach Jim Mora said Monday during his weekly press conference.

Mora said Dickerson will have “a plate put in there” and will be “out for quite a while.”

Asked to clarify if his college career had come to a close, Mora divulged more information.

“There is a chance [he returns this season],” Mora said. “I don’t want to say it’s 50 percent or 60 or 75. But yes, there is a chance.”

Mora added that all other injured Bruins — including linebacker Josh Woods — have a chance to return this season.

Dickerson, a 6-foot-4 senior, has played in all seven of UCLA’s games so far this year, recording 21 tackles — good enough to rank No. 9 on the team.
