Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia is bracing for the possibility of having season-ending surgery on his broken left foot. Pedroia will have a CT scan on Friday. He says if the exam doesn't show sufficient healing, he will have a screw put in his foot. The injury originally occurred in late June. Pedroia returned for two games in August, then went back on the 15-day disabled list. He and the Red Sox hoped for his return this month, but his recovery hasn't gone as swiftly as anticipated.

The injury to defensive end Datone Jones refueled concerns about UCLA's synthetic turf at Spaulding Field.

Coach Rick Neuheisel was optimistic that Jones could play again this season, though "the surgery is a 10- to 12-week deal," Neuheisel said. The injury occurred when Jones was "running, making a play on quarterback, and stepped in an awkward way and put a little pressure on that bone," Neuheisel said.
