UCLA All-America outside linebacker Anthony Barr suffered an apparent head injury in practice Tuesday.

Barr was injured during an 11-on-11 team drill and vomited before being helped to the locker room by trainers, the Los Angeles Daily News reported.

Bruins head coach Jim Mora told The Dan Patrick Show that Barr, the top senior defender in the 2014 NFL Draft, would "be OK."

"He took a shot," Mora said Wednesday morning. "It wobbled him."

Barr recorded 13.5 sacks and 21.5 tackles for loss last season, his first as a defender after two years as an H-back.

"Anthony is a big part of our defense," inside linebacker Jordan Zumwalt told the Los Angeles Times. "We got guys, we got backups, yes. We have a lot of talented backers. But Anthony is a key part of this defense. Hopefully, he's OK."
