Dietrich Riley (St. Francis High, 2010) sophomore, UCLA football: As his Bruins were putting the finishing touches on a bounce back win over Cal at the Rose Bowl on Saturday, Riley suffered a scare, as he was carted off the field with a neck injury. But, according to a report from ESPNLosAngeles.com, the safety was released from Huntington Hospital and was with the team for film sessions Sunday afternoon.
"Everything has checked out fine," UCLA Coach Rick Neuheisel told ESPNLosAngeles.com. "He was here today and looked great and says he's ready to go. The doctors want to be careful and they'll look at him tomorrow and we'll see about his availability for this week, but to hear Dietrich and to see Dietrich, you'd say he's going to be just fine."
Riley recorded five tackles (four solo) in the 31-14 win over the Golden Bears, which saw the Bruins improve to 4-4 and 3-2 in the Pacific-12 Conference coming off a 48-12 loss at Arizona the week prior. He made a tackle on Cal running back Isi Sofele with 10:41 left in the fourth quarter and remained on the ground for several minutes before being removed on a stretcher, although he was moving his arms and gave a hand signal to the home crowd, according to ESPNLosAngeles.com.
