Williams out, plus practice update

UW coach Tyrone Willingham said today that safety Nate Williams will “probably not” make the trip to Oregon State Saturday.
That’s about as strong as Willingham usually gets ahead of time, so I’d count Williams out for this week. He’s suffering from a hamstring injury.
That’s apparently about it on the personnel front, however, as Willingham said the team is otherwise healthy as the weekend nears.
Willingham wouldn’t say whether J.R. Hasty will make the trip, though he also was complimentary of the job Hasty has done since returning to the team saying “he’ll be okay” so one might think there’s a chance Hasty will end up in Corvallis this weekend.
Willingham talked again about the importance of defending Yvensen Bernard, saying that if he’s healthy “that’s the focus of their offense.”
He was also asked about Alexis Serna’s 13-13 on field goals against UW the last three years and said “it’s unbelievable” and that the only way to stop is to keep the Beavers out of scoring position.
He said another focus of the week is getting off to a good start as Oregon State has outscored opponents 92-9 in the first quarter this year. “We’ve got to get off to a great start and quiet them down,” he said.
Finally, he remarked on the fact that a record crowd is apparently anticipated at Reser Stadium for this game — 44,015 against Oregon last year is the current mark — and that his team will have to weather that, as well.
NEW RECORD — A reader pointed out that Jake Locker and Willie Tuitama combined to set a Pac-10 record for most total offense by two players in one game two weeks ago. Tuitama had 517 total yards and Locker 493, a combined 1,010. The old mark was 1,005 by Cal’s Pat Barnes (503) and Arizona’s Keith Smith (502) in a four-overtime game in 1996. No one was apparently aware of that record so no notice was made of it previously.
PRACTICE UPDATE:
— TE Johnie Kirton was in sweats and not practicing. UPDATE — Kirton was apparently sick so he was held out, but he’s expected to make the trip.
— For what it’s worth, Hasty was wearing his usual number and not a scout team number, possibly more evidence that he’s making the trip.
Quintin Daniels was working out a bit and looked closer to returning. He’s been out since the ASU game.
— We got to see about a minute of the two-minute drill and we saw the No. 2 offense score on a long pass from Carl Bonnell to a receiver we think was Curtis Shaw (with scout team numbers, it’s hard to know for sure).
