While Oregon's quarterback -- and cornerback -- situation is uncertain, UCLA will play host to the Ducks on Saturday with its starting quarterback back behind center.
Redshirt freshman Kevin Prince, who broke his jaw in the waning moments of the victory over Tennessee on Sept. 12, returned to practice Tuesday and took nearly all of the first-team reps.
Prince, who was medically cleared Wednesday morning, showed some rust after missing three weeks of work, but he's probable to face Oregon after senior Kevin Craft started the previous two games.
Reported the L.A. Times: "The jaw, which was fractured in two places, will not be completely healed for at least two more weeks. But Prince will wear a helmet that covers more of the jaw area and was fitted for a special mouthpiece for his lower teeth."
