Dorian Thompson-Robinson backed into the imaginary pocket, firing a 10-yard pass into the end zone.

UCLA fans could exhale Monday morning. The Bruins quarterback was back at practice as if nothing had happened two days earlier, as if he had never been forced to leave the team’s 35-24 victory over Stanford for one play because of an injury before returning to throw a clinching touchdown pass.
His gutsy performance won him a new legion of fans but came as no surprise to coach Chip Kelly.
