Kevin Prince To Miss Three To Four Weeks

Sept. 13, 2009

UCLA redshirt freshman quarterback Kevin Prince has a fractured jaw and will be out three to four weeks, head coach Rick Neuheisel announced today.

Prince was injured late in the 19-15 win at Tennessee when he was hit on a third-down play in the Bruins' end zone. He returned only to kneel on the final two snaps of the win.

He was examined in the locker room after the game and returned to Los Angeles with the team. He had x-rays this morning that confirmed the fracture on the right side of his jaw. His jaw will be wired shut to assist with the healing process.

"This is a tough blow for Kevin and for our football team," said Neuheisel. "We hope Kevin recovers quickly but we have other talented quarterbacks in our program. We have confidence in all of our quarterbacks and we will get them ready to lead us against Kansas State this Saturday."
