UCLA football: Safety Tony Dye to sit out Oregon State game

September 24, 2011 | 12:09 pm

Tony-dye_150 UCLA free safety Tony Dye (pictured at right) will not start and is not expected to play against Oregon State on Saturday because of a shoulder injury.

Rick Neuheisel said Thursday that Dye was “50-50” due to a “nerve issue.” Dye was injured against San Jose State on Sept. 10, but played last week against Texas. He did not practice this week.

Dye, a team captain, has started 28 consecutive games. Tevin McDonald will start in Dye’s place.
