Richard Brehaut Injury: Fractured Fibula, Out Indefinitely

As soon as the news broke that Richard Brehaut's injury in Saturday's game against Washington State was a broken leg, Bruins fans and officials were holding their breath waiting for the other shoe to drop...no pun intended.

Via Chris Foster of the Los Angeles Times, the official word on Brehaut's injury is a fractured left fibula. UCLA coach Rick Neuheisel indicated that the Bruins quarterback could be out anywhere from three to six weeks, which could mean that the fracture is effectively ending Brehaut's season.

Brehaut left Saturday's game in the second quarter when he suffered what at first appeared to be a twisted ankle, but was unable to walk off the field on his own. Brehaut has started four of the six Bruins games this season, and up until the injury had passed for 907 yards with six touchdowns.

Kevin Prince, who was the starting quarterback at the beginning of the season, was able to lead the Bruins to a come-from-behind injury over the Cougars after Brehaut was injured. He will be the starting quarterback while Brehaut is out. The Orange County Register reports that freshman quarterback Brett Hundley is taking extra practice in order to be ready as the potential backup QB.
