UCLA football: Bruins QB Kevin Prince has mild shoulder separation

November 30, 2009 |  4:04 pm
UCLA quarterback Kevin Prince has a mild shoulder separation, suffered during the 28-7 loss to USC Saturday, according to a source familiar with the Bruins' program.

Prince was injured while scrambling; he was tackled by USC’s Everson Griffen and landed on his right shoulder. An MRI Monday revealed the extent of the injury.

The usual recovery time from a Grade 1 AC sprain is three to six weeks.

This is Prince’s third injury this season. He suffered a fractured jaw against Tennessee the second week of the season and missed three games. He also missed the second half against Washington because of a concussion.

The Bruins sill have hopes of reaching a bowl game, which may have been enhanced by Notre Dame players voting against playing in a game. Prince's availability for a game would be questionable.
