Tight end shortage?

The most interesting news out of Tyrone Willingham’s press conference today may have been that the Huskies apparently suffered injuries to not just one tight end Saturday, but two.
Willingham said sophomore Michael Gottlieb suffered a break in his hand. He termed his status as “up in the air” and said more will be known in a day or two.
Robert Lewis, meanwhile, suffered some sort of foot injury and more about his status will also be known in a day or two.
Those are two of the three players listed as co-starters at the position on this week’s depth chart.
And that’s why redshirt freshman Tim Williams was also listed on the depth chart this week as he could be the backup to Johnie Kirton if both Gottlieb and Lewis are out.
Willingham said if the injuries prove serious that the team may have to “make some adjustments” to fill in the gaps in that position. That would probably include a position change for someone, though who, I’m not sure.
Isaiah Stanback also showed up at the luncheon with his left wrist wrapped, but he said it’s nothing serious and that he’ll be fine. He said he didn’t know exactly when he was injured, saying he took a number of hits during the game, something that could become more of an issue as the season wears on if Stanback continunes to run 17 times a game, as he did Saturday.
I also talked with Dashon Goldson who said he anticipated being able to play more than the three plays he was on the field for Saturday though he’s still far from 100 percent in recovery from his high ankle sprain.
Willingham talked a little about the secondary, saying he believed the personnel that was on the field was appropriate but that coaches have to do a better job of utilizing it and the players have to do a better job of playing.
He also confirmed what we suspected here earlier, that Jordan White-Frisbee didn’t see action Saturday because the Huskies didn’t use their base defense much, instead going almost the entire second half with their nickel package.
More later.
