Per Jeff Eisenberg of the Press Enterprise, Hester was optimistic about a swift return after the Tennessee game:
The redshirt freshman believes he initially sustained the injury when he landed wrong making a tackle in the first quarter and likely exacerbated it when he felt a "pop" making a cut early in the second quarter.
The prognosis for Hester's return won't be known for a day or two, according to UCLA coach Rick Neuheisel, though the corner himself has already set a target date.
"Y'all can expect me back in three weeks, without a doubt," Hester said. "It's a small break. I can walk on it already."
Neuheisel though is taking a more cautious approach:
On Sunday, though, Neuheisel said it was more likely the injury would sideline Hester for at least 4-6 weeks.
Overall, it seems like good news to me. I hope the coaches take as long as necessary with Aaron. We have great hopes for what he can do in Westwood. Let him completely heal before returning this season.
Speaking of being ready to go we all were holding our breath when Prince looked to be down after a play. Again details from the Press Enterprise:
Junior Brian Price gave UCLA a big scare during San Diego State's opening drive when he limped off the field without putting much weight on his right leg after Rahim Moore leg-whipped him while attempting to make a tackle.
Price, perhaps the nation's top defensive tackle, returned later in the first quarter, quickly proving that the injury would not bother him when he took on two linemen and dragged running back Anthony Miller down for a 1-yard loss.
"My leg's bruised, but it's no big deal," Price said. "I'm ready to play."
All I can say is: PHEW.
