Stanback to have surgery, out for the year (Updated)

Washington coach Tyrone Willingham just announced on his weekly radio show that Isaiah Stanback will have surgery to repair his foot and will be out for the season.
Willingham said that “without surgery, they don’t heal correctly so you have to go in and make repairs so he can be able to walk and run again.”
Asked if Stanback could be back by late December if UW were to make it to a bowl game, Willingham said “we are talking longer than that.”
Willingham said Stanback will have surgery at noon Tuesday.
Carl Bonnell will be the starter for UW Saturday against Cal. Johnny DuRocher is listed as the backup and Willingham said the coaches will consider all their options at the position, including Jake Locker. When he spoke to the media earlier today, he said that if Stanback were to be out for the year, it could change the thought process on playing Locker.
Willingham described the injury as a Lisfranc fracture. Here’s a link to what that is.
We’ll have more later.
Here’s a little more — the official release from UW on the injury.
As the release says, Stanback will wear a cast and limit weightbearing on the foot for 6-8 weeks following surgery. Normal rehabilitation can take 8-12 months, which will hamper his efforts to make it to the NFL.
Also, some additional info from UW officials. They said Stanback did not suffer a fracture, but that surgery is needed to insert screws and probably a small plate to stabalize the foot. They said it is similar to the injury that cornerback Derrick Johnson suffered in 2001, which caused him to miss the whole season. It is also the same injury that Donny Mateaki suffered in the spring of 2005. He recovered well enough to play that fall.
We will have more on all of this in the pages of the Times tomorrow, and on-line.
