Husky Football Blog

The latest news and analysis on the Montlake Dawgs.

Afternoon update

The Huskies were in shells (helmets, shoulder pads, shorts) for their one practice today.
There appeared to be one new name added to the injury list — RB J.R. Hasty, who appeared to pull himself out of running back drills with some kind of foot/ankle injury and then ride an exercise bike, instead. Didn’t look too serious but everything matters now with the season so close, and with the backup RB spot still unsettled.
RB Brandon Yakaboski (concussion) was wearing red while DE Darrion Jones (foot/ankle) was out of action.
Also appearing still limited, at best, was CB Byron Davenport, who we were told is unlikely to play against Syracuse by defensive coordinator Kent Baer.
With Baer also saying that Cory Nicol has been a little banged up of late, sounds like there’s a decent chance that true freshman Vonzell McDowell could be the starter at the other cornerback spot opposite Roy Lewis come a week from today.
Goes without saying that’s not the optimum situation for a team that will face a steady stream of good passing attacks this season.
In one bit of slight positive news, Syracuse doesn’t qualify in that regard, at least based on last year’s stats, as the Orange ranking 103rd in the nation in passing last year at 157.1 yards per game. But the Orange is also ramping up its passing attack this season now that Andrew Robinson is taking over at QB.
