Coach Rick Neuheisel all but announced that quarterback Kevin Prince would not play in the Fall scrimmage Saturday evening.
Prince did not make any throws during practice Thursday and did not take any snaps during the short-yardage scrimmage at the end of practice.
"Hopefully we get him back next week and we can put this chapter behind us," Neuheisel said. "There is no reason to be upset about it. Our trainers are doing everything they can and it’s just a muscle injury that takes some time. Unfortunately, none of us are in the patience business, but we have to be."
In other injury news, linebacker Patrick Larimore returned to practice after missing almost a week because of a strained hamstring. Offensive lineman Eddie Williams sat out of the short-yardage scrimmage and went to the training room with what Neuheisel called "concussion-like symptoms." Darius Savage replaced Williams on the first-team line.
"We’re not sure it’s a concussion," Neuheisel said. "We hope it isn’t. We decided to take him out. It’s precautionary."
