Here it is as well:
University of Washington quarterback Jake Locker (Ferndale, Wash.) suffered a stinger and trapezius muscle strain in the second quarter of last night’s Husky football game at Oregon State University.
He received immediate attention on the playing field by the UW sports medicine staff, OSU facilities personnel and local paramedics and was transported to Good Samaritan Hospital in Corvallis for testing.
He returned to the stadium and walked to the UW sideline late in the game and, after visiting with his teammates, coaches and family, returned to Seattle accompanied by a team doctor.
Today, he underwent additional testing, which confirmed the extent of the injury and began therapy. He is expected to have a full recovery.
“We are truly happy that the tests that were conducted on Jake indicated nothing more serious that a stinger and muscle strain,” said Tyrone Willingham, UW’s head football coach. “We will not rush Jake’s return to the field. The extent to which Jake will be out of action will be in large part determined by his ability to recover from the injury. Jake, his family and the University of Washington football program are very appreciative of all the well wishes, thoughts and prayers that have been extended to him and we look forward to having him back on the field upon his recovery.”
