UCLA DE Eddie Vanderdoes (foot) out for spring practice

The first spring practice for UCLA came with a few personnel updates from head coach Jim Mora, including a foot injury for a potential starter and a dismissal for suspended offensive tackle Torian White.

Eddie Vanderdoes, the Bruins' 6-4, 305-pound defensive lineman, was spotted on a scooter in street clothes on Tuesday. Mora told reporters that Vanderdoes broke his foot during conditioning drills and will miss all of UCLA's spring practice. Vanderdoes, who should be "good to go" for summer workouts, started seven games for the Bruins as a true freshman in 2013 and recording 37 tackles (4.5 for a loss). 

Mora also announced that offensive lineman Torian White "is no longer with the program." White, a starter to begin the 2013 season, suffered a broken bone and torn ligament in his right leg on Oct. 3 and was then suspended Nov. 19 following a sexual assault charge
