Bonnell good to go

Michael Ko of our staff covered Tyrone Willingham’s meeting with the media today as I was in Los Angeles for Pac-10 basketball media day.
He reports that status is pretty much quo as the Huskies prepare for Saturday’s game at Oregon.
Willingham said quarterback Carl Bonnell has had a good week of practice and that his concussion of a week ago “should not be a problem” against the Ducks. He said Bonnell and Johnny DuRocher took almost all the snaps in practice this week.
Willingham said the team tried to limit the practice snaps for RB Kenny James as he recovers from a sprained ankle that held him out last week. So while James is likely to play, expect Louis Rankin to again start.
Also, TE Johnie Kirton is not yet 100 percent, Willingham said, but is moving in that direction.
Willingham said injured players Donald Butler, Jason Wells and Luke Kravitz won’t start.
With wet weather expected in Eugene, Willingham said the Huskies were going to practice with wet footballs today to try to prepare.
Also, we were remiss Wednesday in not passing along the news that K Ryan Perkins has had a setback in his recovery from a knee injury suffered in the spring game last April. Perkins recently had to have another surgery and may not be ready for spring ball this year, pushing his recovery time into the summer.
