04:41 PM ET 04.29 | UCLA defensive back Marcus Rios has a rare fungus infection around his sinuses that might force him to miss the entire 2013 season; the ailment has proven to be fatal in other cases. Rios already has undergone six surgical procedures to address the infection since it was initially discovered last October and is slated for another surgery in the next couple of weeks. He'll be out six months at the very least, according to head coach Jim Mora.
