Post-Practice Update

* With players just in helmets today – no pads, no shoulder pads – there’s not much to update.

* Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times wrote tonight that Washington coach Steve Sarkisian said that Jake Locker has not been medically cleared to play, but all indications are that he’ll go on Thursday against the Bruins.
UCLA coach Rick Neuheisel believes so:
“It’s the biggest joke of all time,” Neuheisel said. “The man’s playing. It’s just the way it is.”

* A lot of special team work today, a lot of passing against scout team, and Richard Brehaut looked really sharp. He had one pass to Josh Smith on the side of the end zone that he just wouldn’t have made a few weeks ago.

* Nelson Rosario and Sheldon Price will see increased action, but I don’t anticipate too much Steve Sloan as he works his way back in.

* There have been some questions and comments about Kevin Prince’s eventual return, but Neuheisel said he didn’t have a timeline yet, and I would be surprised if there is one this early. Microfracture surgery can be a lengthy rehab and combined with the other injuries, it won’t be an easy road back for Prince.
“I know he’s out for the year,” Neuheisel said. “I’ll worry about spring ball when that time comes.”

    Does it really matter anymore when Prince can come back? With Hundley coming in and Brehaut not looking terrible, Prince will be 3rd on the depth chart. He’s finally irrelevant.

    Jon, I thought we established that Prince is effectively done at UCLA. No need to report anything further on him.

    obviously having never been faced with great difficulty in your life, it seems somehow amusing to diminish what Kevin Prince has in front of him. Here’s hoping Kevin attacks his rehab, comes all the way back and gives these other guys a run for their money come spring ball. Regardless of the outcome, I look forward to reading about Kevin Prince as long as he’s a Bruin.

    Classy stuff, Blitzed & Blue.

    Yeah losers, stop piling on the KID. He is just a kid and plays his heart out, what have you ever done? Especially considering he led the team to a few of our only bright spots the last two years with victories over Tennessee, Texas and a Bowl win over Temple. Lay off.

    If Kevin comes back next year looking like Tim Tebow or Jake Locker, I’m sure all Bruin fans will hand him the keys to the QB spot. Get healthy, Kevin, and keep the fire in the belly.

    i remain unconvinced blue and blitzed are actually Bruin fans.
