UCLA was without its lead tailback Saturday against Arizona State.

Zach Charbonnet was unavailable, missing his second game of the season. Coach Chip Kelly told reporters on Monday that Charbonnet was expected back on the field this week as UCLA prepares for Arizona.

“He said he feels better, so we’re gonna see what he can do today,” Kelly said before the Bruins practiced.

According to The O.C. Register’s Haley Sawyer, Charbonnet was limited during the practice observed by the media and was spotted with athletic tape wrapped around his left bicep and left calf area.

In spite of having appeared in two fewer games than the rest of the conference’s top rushers, Charbonnet still leads all Pac-12 players in rushing yards (964) and rushing average (7.5). In his second season with the Bruins, he’s been even more impressive than in his first — which is saying something considering his first year in the league featured an All-Pac-12 selection.

Charbonnet’s 137 yards a game are the third-most of any runner in the country. He has at least 100 yards in five straight and at least 151 in each of his last three.

Even without him, the Bruins still ran wild in a 50-36 win over Arizona State. Kaz Allen ran for 137 yards on 11 carries. Quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson ran for 120 yards and two scores on 10 carries. Keegan Jones added 98 and a score on 12 carries. As a team, the Bruins were north of 400 rushing yards.

Kelly said after the game Charbonnet tried to give it a go in warmups but couldn’t make it to the game. He’ll look to return to the field Saturday when UCLA hosts Arizona at 7:30 p.m. PT on FOX.
