Stewart to go?

Oregon coach Mike Bellotti just spoke on the weekly Pac-10 Conference coaches media call and said that he expects running back Jonathan Stewart to play this weekend.
“He’s a tough kid who is excited for this game,” said Bellotti of Stewart, a sophomore from Lacey who considered UW briefly (and WSU much more heavily) before heading to Oregon.
Stewart has battled nagging ankle injuries all season and also suffered an abdominal strain Saturday against Portland State when he was pushed into a bench by an opposing player, a play that drew the wrath of Bellotti.
When Stewart isn’t in the lineup, the Ducks go with sophomore Jeremiah Johnson, who is the subject of this profile in The Portland Tribune.
Bellotti also said Oregon may take the redshirt off of true freshman running back Andre Crenshaw, who has yet to play this season, to fill in the depth at that spot.
Today is the day offensive players and coaches speak to the media here at UW so that will be the focus of today’s coverage.
