Kevin Olsen, the backup Miami Hurricanes quarterback who was suspended for the season opener following a failed drug test, was arrested for driving under the influence in Miami early this morning. Olsen, the younger brother of Panthers’ tight end Greg Olsen, was considered a possible starter coming into the season. He was also charged with possession of a stolen driver’s license.
UCLA QB Brett Hundley was taken out of the game against Texas, after falling awkwardly on his non-throwing arm during a scramble. Hundley had been averaging 12.0 yards/attempt. His backup, Jerry Neuheisel, is now averaging 3.8. The Bruins are tied 10-10 with Texas in the 3rd quarter.
This isn’t the first time Hundley has suffered an injury in the collegiate ranks. He tore his meniscus as a freshman in 2011, which resulted in a medical redshirt. Hundley bounced back and became an elite signal-caller in 2012 and 2013, but that injury likely remained in the back of everyone’s mind.
Jim Mora had Hundley take a seat to earn an injury timeout. Soccer is clearly catching on.
