Quick injury update

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.

More from the call:
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.

    CRN, you are the Head Coach this week, but I wouldn’t guarantee you having the position going forward.

    If UCLA doesn’t shore up their defense against the short underneath pass they will be in for a long day up at the Farm. All of their opponents this year have used the short passes to march down the field, and eating up the clock, any time they want. Luck will carve them up like a Thanksgiving turkey if they don’t try bumping the receivers at the LOS. Here’s my prediction, as soon as Brehaut has a bad game Prince will be named the starter, for the rest of the season.

    The Bruins are going to bring in Jon Gruden this week to help coach the team. Dan Guerro has named Neuheisel as the starting coach this week but he want both he and Gruden to compete for the starting position as head coach.

    Seriously, Brehaut throws 11 passes. Prince has to have pictures and threatening Rick. It’s like Rick is doing everything he can to keep Brehaut from succeeding to the point that that he has no excuse but to bench Prince long-term.

    Prince is a good guy. I’m sure Matt Cassel was a good guy at USC. Get behind Brehaut and give him the keys to the car.
