ASU QB Taylor Kelly Is Ruled Out Against UCLA


Arizona State quarterback Taylor Kelly, who injured his foot in Saturday’s 38-24 win at Colorado, will miss the Sept. 25 game against UCLA and possibly the Oct. 4 game at USC, according to a source.

He will at least, be out for the UCLA showdown on September 25th and it could be a big blow for the Sun Devils

Taylor Kelly is expected back for the Oct. 18 game against Stanford at the latest, the source said.

ESPN reported Sunday night that the Sun Devils do not expect Taylor Kelly to play against the Bruins. Kelly left the Colorado game in the third quarter after falling awkwardly from a tackle when trying to escape the pocket. He came back to the sidelines on crutches and wearing a protective boot.

ASU’s 247 Sports site is reporting that Taylor Kelly’s foot is, in fact, broken.

The Sun Devils won 10 games last year and expect to compete for a Pac-12 South title. Senior Mike Bercovici is expected to start in Kelly’s absence.

Coach Todd Graham has said he will not update his quarterback’s status until after that game.

Kelly is a three-year starter at Arizona State and is the school’s all-time leader in completion percentage. He has thrown for 625 yards and six touchdowns in the Sun Devils’ first three games, all wins.
