UCLA sophomore quarterback Kevin Prince missed most of Wednesday's practice with a tweaked oblique muscle. He time to sign autographs and pose for photos afterward.

If pictures are worth a thousand words, then the severity of sophomore quarterback Kevin Prince's oblique injury is nothing to get worked up about.

UCLA fans, you can breathe.

Prince was sidelined for most of Wednesday's practice, paving the way for sophomore Nick Crissman to handle the duties in the first session. Coach Rick Neuheisel did not seem concerned, saying that Prince's absence was precautionary.

Rather than head into the trainer's room to get treatment, Prince stopped to sign autographs and pose for photos. He stayed for about 20 minutes, until there were no more requests.
