Stanback update, other notes

UW coach Tyrone Willingham said this afternoon that Tuesday’s surgery on quarterback Isaiah Stanback “went well.”
Willingham said Stanback is now “back at home resting and he will probably be up and about probably next week.”
Willingham said Stanback probably won’t make the trip to the California game because “of the sweeling and the pressure you get on planes.” But he said Stanback will likely attend all other UW games this season.
Willingham said UW’s team trainers were “comfortable” with how the surgery went, “but there are a lot of things that have got to happen now with the healing process.”
Willingham said he hopes Dashon Goldson will be able to practice today after reinjuring his ankle Saturday. “Hopefully he can get some work this week because it’s difficult to play well unless you practice,” Willingham said.
In the only other new injury news, Willingham said C.J. Wallace suffered a “bruise to the knee” in practice Tuesday. “We’ll see how that comes out today,” Willingham said.
Willingham had nothing new to report on the quarterback situation. Wednesday is the team’s most intense practice of the week so any evaluation of how the quarterbacks are doing would wait until at least Thursday.
Willingham also said cornerback Jordan Murchison, who has yet to play this season, is not necessarily on track to redshirt this year. Willingham said Murchison has been getting healthy and has been doing more in practice.
We also asked him about receiver Marcel Reece and Willingham said simply that other players are playing better right now than Reece has of late.
