UCLA quarterback Kevin Prince did not practice Tuesday as he tries to recover from a knee injury he sustained during the Bruins' 34-12 victory Saturday at Texas.

Prince had an MRI Sunday and it revealed no structural damage, but he had enough pain and swelling to keep him off the practice field. He had the knee wrapped and walked with a noticeable limp. He said he is day to day.

"The last two days when I've woken up in the morning it's felt great and as the day goes on it gets stiff, and gets swollen," Prince said. "I'm not too concerned about it. I think as we keep on going and I keep getting treatments, it'll get better."

Prince injured the knee on a run in the second quarter against Texas. Television cameras famously showed him arguing with a trainer on the sideline to get back in the game after he limped off the field.

Prince did not miss a play and finished with 50 yards rushing, including a 38-yard touchdown run in the third quarter. He threw a touchdown pass to Ricky Marvray two plays after the injury occurred.

"We thought it best to rest him today and we'll see where he is tomorrow," Coach Rick Neuheisel said. "I'll wait and hear from the trainers what they think is the best course of action. It's not anything to do with any structure, there's just some swelling."
