Running back corps thins

UW coach Tyrone Willingham told reporters today that fullback Luke Kravitz suffered a knee injury in practice Wednesday and is definitely out this weekend and maybe for another game or two after that.
That will thin even further UW’s depth at running back. Kenny James remains questionable to play Saturday after spraining his ankle against Cal. He has told coaches he wants to play and was medically cleared to go, but he has not taken snaps in practice this week.
Kravitz was considered the one fullback who could move to tailback if needed so his loss has signifigance even though he has played little at fullback this season.
Louis Rankin is likely to start at tailback with Shelton Sampson in reserve with James uncertain. Mark Palaita is the starting fullback and with Kravitz out, true freshman Paul Homer moves up to backup.
Safety C.J. Wallace remains hobbled but should play Saturday.
