Kevin Prince Suffers Shoulder Injury, Concussion; Questionable For San Jose State Game

The UCLA Bruins might have seen their quarterback situation resolve itself when Richard Brehaut threw pretty well. Brehaut came in on relief Kevin Prince went down with an apparently shoulder injury after getting spun in the air, and  UCLA had to rely on Brehaut. Brehaut rushed for 78 yards on 13 carries and completed 65% of his passes at an impressive 10.2 yards per attempt, and seemed to prove he was worthy of a starting spot. 

Brehaut could very well be UCLA's starter next week regardless. Prince's injury might not be serious enough to keep him out for an indefinite period of time, but he's probably not healthy enough to get the start (or even snaps) next week. Chris Foster of the Los Angeles Times reports.

UCLA QB Kevin Prince has AC sprain in shoulder as well as concussion. Concussion has cleared. Questionable for Sat. because of the shoulder.

Coach Rick Neuheisel said he will see how much time Prince can practice before making a decision on a starter.

If Prince can't go, Richard Brehaut starts. Brett Hundley is No. 2, provided he's ready. Hundley still coming back from from knee surgery.

Considering that it's the San Jose St. Spartans (fresh off a 54-point pummeling from the Cardinal) that UCLA will be seeing in the Rose Bowl in a week, it would make sense for the Bruins to rest up Prince before their tilt with Texas. All hands will need to be on deck for that game and Prince is needed.
