Rick Neuheisel has announced that they will be even more short-handed for Saturday's game against the Kansas State Wildcats.

Courtney Viney, Milton Knox, Randoll Carroll, and Morrell Presley have all been suspended for breaking a team rule.

The suspension of Courtney Viney makes the UCLA secondary more thin than it already was. Viney, who was staring in place of the inured Aaron Hester, played solid against Tennessee last Saturday. He had 7 tackles with one pass defended.

Viney was looking to prove the people saying he was too short wrong, but he will have to wait another week to continue.

Starting in his place is likely to be true-freshman Sheldon Price, and will likely be tested throughout the game. 

On the offensive side of the ball, Presley, Knox, and Carroll's suspension don't hurt as bad as Viney's. The Bruins will still have their primary play makers. Look for Franklin and Coleman to get the carries this week.

On another note, Rick Neuheisel hasn't announced who will start in place of injured Kevin Prince, but sources say Richard Brehaut (Bree-hoo) will likely make his first collegiate start.
