UCLA linebacker Jordan Zumwalt returned to practice in full pads Tuesday morning.
Zumwalt, one of the Bruins' top defensive players, missed Saturday's game at Colorado after suffering cuts and bruises in a motor scooter accident. He had a gash over his left eye that required "a lot of stitches," Coach Jim Mora said.
Zumwalt is now expected to play against California on Saturday. He has 4.5 tackles for a loss and one sack this season.
Damien Holmes, who filled in for Zumwalt, is expected to move back to inside linebacker.
[Updated 10:18 a.m. Oct. 2: Zumwalt said he was able to put on his helmet for the first time, but was limited during practice Tuesday.
