Sun Devils' head coach Todd Graham doesn't know if defensive tackle Will Sutton will be able to play against the UCLA Bruins due to a bone bruise on his knee, according to The Arizona Republic's Doug Haller.

Haller added that Graham is being cautious with his star defensive player, who with 8.5 sacks on the year is tied for third in the nation.

Sutton was injured on the second play from scrimmage in ASU's 43-21 loss to the Oregon Ducks last Saturday. He knocked the ball out of Marcus Mariota's hands to force a turnover, but knocked knees on the play. Sutton didn't return and watched the rest of the game with crutches from the sidelines.

Graham admitted after the game that losing Sutton caught the team off guard. ASU scored a touchdown after the turnover to go ahead 7-0, but the Ducks quickly scored and ran off 43 straight points before halftime.

The junior out of Corona, Calif., has 41 tackles on the season.
