"Safety Dietrich Riley is expected to have neck surgery Monday, which would force him to sit out the 2012 season. He was injured Oct. 29 against California and was taken to a hospital after tackling Golden Bears running back Isi Sofele.
Riley will have surgery similar to one Peyton Manning had last year. UCLA Coach Jim Mora arranged for Manning to talk with Riley about the surgery. He can be a redshirt this season and have two years of eligibility remaining."
