UCLA head coach Rick Neuheisel said on Sunday night’s conference call that all three Bruins who were injured in the team’s 27-19 win at Oregon State on Saturday night were expected to play next week.
Cornerback Sheldon Price has a minor knee sprain, safety Dalton Hilliard has a minor AC sprain in his shoulder and Johnathan Franklin has a hip contusion, and none of the injuries are major.
Senior cornerback Jamie Graham (knee) is back and running and should be returning to practice this week. … Senior safety Tony Dye is expected to return to practice this week after being held out of the game after suffering a stinger. … Redshirt freshman kicker Kip Smith is expected to return from a hip injury.

Neuheisel said “Richard Brehaut is our starting quarterback,” but added that he wants the players to continue competing, and wouldn’t guarantee Brehaut the position going forward. Kevin Prince, meanwhile, is 100 percent recovered from sprains to both shoulders, Neuheisel clarified today.
