Huskies’ luck changing?

Just came back from the beginning of Washington’s afternoon practice Friday — which is the final two-a-day of training camp — and came to the realization that maybe things really are beginning to turn for the Huskies.
As we looked out at the field, there was very little red — the color signifying an injured player – in evidence.
And that lack of red coming despite the events of Thursday when there was a three-way pile-up involving Anthony Russo, C.J. Wallace and Jason Wells that sent Wallace to the hospital.
One person called it a “horrific” collision that had everyone in attendance in hushed silence. But 24 hours later, all three players were back out on the practice field, and while none appeared ready to play a game, all should be ready when the games do start Sept.2.
In fact, as of now, almost every player on what was presumed to be UW’s preseason two-deep should be ready to go with the exception of cornerback Dashon Goldson, still battling a nagging high ankle sprain.
Defensive coordinator Kent Baer said today he expects DE Greyson Gunheim and everybody else on the defense to be ready to play against the Spartans. Players who have been question marks such as DTs Jordan White-Frisbee and Erick Lobos have improved enough that they should be able to at least provide spot duty for the opener.
Safety Chris Hemphill (thigh bruise) and Wells were each in red for today’s practice, but both should be back soon. Wallace was in uniform for today’s practice (shoulder pads and helmets only) though he wasn’t doing any work. But he also should be back by early next week at the latest.
And the only offensive player who would be out for the San Jose State game is WR Cody Ellis.
Considering the reports from elsewhere — WSU losing a key defensive end, Oregon losing two defensive starters for at least the first week or so, etc. — the Huskies appear to have made it through training camp in pretty good shape.
That’s welcome news for a team that will be battling depth issues all season.
