According to Joe Schad of ESPN, Taylor Kelly is unlikely to play against UCLA. Schad shared the news on Twitter late Sunday night, citing an anonymous source.

There is still no official word from the team regarding Kelly's status for the Thursday night primetime game against the Bruins. Doug Haller of AZCentral also tweeted out earlier on Sunday that a team spokesman told him that head coach Todd Graham will not discuss the injury to Kelly or Moeakiola until after the game against UCLA.

Kelly went down in the second half against Colorado Saturday night, apparently injuring his right foot on a quarterback keeper play. He went to the locker room and then came back out onto the field on crutches and in a walking boot. Kelly was 13 of 21 for 195 yards and three touchdowns before the injury. He watched the rest of the game from the sidelines with a towel draped over his head.

Redshirt junior Mike Bercovici would be Kelly's replacement. He was 2 of 4 passing for 8 yards in replacement of Kelly Saturday night.

Update: Haller has published a story. He cites a program source, saying Kelly will likely miss UCLA, but could be back for the USC game and he is expected on the field against Stanford. That story can be read here.

Update No.  2: Here is Schad's story that he filed to ESPN. Basically says the same thing he said in the tweets.

Update No. 3: Chris Karpman of wrote and published his story Monday morning. He cites "multiple sources directly familiar with the development" saying Kelly is out against UCLA, unlikely to play against USC but could be back against Stanford
