Willingham and Thursday practice notes

Coach Tyrone Willingham said running back Brandon Johnson returned today after missing the past two days due to a death in the family. Willingham said Johnson, who had his first start last week against UCLA and gained 75 yards on 20 carries, will make the trip to Pullman.
The coach was unsure how much Johnson would play. If he’s limited, then Willingham will turn to Willie Griffin, Terrance Dailey or fullback Luke Kravitz.
Willingham didn’t mention David Freeman, however, the freshman running back who has missed the past four games because of an ankle injury practiced with the No. 2 offense. Freeman looked very explosive during drills.
Willingham said left offensive tackle Ben Ossai is feeling better and might start. Backup safety Johri Fogerson also practiced Wednesday. He’s listed as a possible starter on the depth chart.
For the third straight day, the Huskies practiced in sweats and helmets. They haven’t had a contact workout all week, which isn’t that surprising this late in the season.
Before the media were escorted out, safety Nate Williams intercepted a Taylor Bean pass near the goal line during an 11-on-11 drill that pitted the No. 2 offense against the No. 1 defense. With cornerback Matt Mosely out with a knee injury, senior Mesphin Forrester lined up with the defensive starters.
Willingham said he felt more energy crackling around the team this week because of Saturday’s Apple Cup. He noted the Kappa Sigma Apple Cup Run, a fundraiser in which fraternity members carry a football 350 miles between Seattle and Pullman.
“Those are some of the delightful things that happen,” Willingham said. “And I think our guys understand that.”
