Posted by ESPN.com's Ted Miller

Some say bad things happen in threes and that's the case with a UCLA injury report this afternoon.

Defensive tackle Jess Ward's MRI Monday showed an MCL sprain in his right knee. He is expected to miss two to three weeks.

Offensive lineman Nick Ekbatani's MRI showed a sprain of the MCL in his left knee. He will be sidelined four to six weeks.

Defensive end Reggie Stokes' MRI on his right knee showed torn cartilage. He's out indefinitely. No decision has yet been made on treatment, according to the school.

Ward backed up Jerzy Siewierski. Eckbatani was listed as the No. 1 right guard, with Darius Savage as his backup. Stokes was listed behind Datone Jones.
