Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E Sports) – UCLA Bruins junior running back Steven Manfro suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in practice and is done for the season.

Manfro had two carries for minus-5 yards and caught one pass for minus-4 yards in a 28-20 victory over Virginia Saturday.

He was part of the Bruins three-man rotation at running back along with Paul Perkins and Jordon James.

Manfro recorded 32 total carries in two years with the team.

Last year he translated 24 of those carries for 107 yards and a touchdown. Two of his eight attempts in 2012 went for touchdowns.

Head coach Jim Mora: had big plans for Manfro as a player who could perhaps lead the team in rushing.

Freshman Nate Starks is expected to take Manfro’s spot Saturday against Memphis.
