UCLA sophomore DB Marcus Rios will not need to undergo further surgery for the fungus infection that will likely sideline him for the 2013 season.

The fungus is located behind his eye and beneath his brain, but there's a chance Rios is able to play at some point in 2013. He has already undergone six surgeries to fix the potentially deadly infection.

UCLA sophomore DB Marcus Rios could miss the 2013 season due to a fungus infection.

The rising sophomore has already undergone six surgeries to remove the infection and he will have a seventh surgery in the next two weeks. Obviously the infection is very rare and has even proven to be fatal in the past. ""It started as a sinus infection last October," Rios told the Los Angeles Times. "Then they found the fungus infection behind my eye and beneath my brain... Only 12 people have ever had it and eight of them have died. Two others recovered and then died later."
