Monday press conference

As you might imagine, there was a lot of information that came out of Steve Sarkisian’s noon news conference.
Here’s a few quick notes.
Jake Locker suffered a thigh injury on the second series Saturday vs. Oregon, which might explain why he didn’t run as much as he normally would have.
— Sarkisian plans to rest several players this week, including: Locker, E.J. Savannah, Mason Foster, Donald Butler, Daniel Te’o-Nesheim, Chris Polk and Nate Williams.
— Sarkisian plans to use the week to increase the reps for several players, including: Keith Price, Ronnie Fouch, Demitrius Bronson, Dorson Boyce, Talia Crichton and Andru Pulu.
— Washington practices Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday before taking three days off and reporting back Sunday for a team activity.
— Sarkisian said UW is “fragile physcially” and “injuries have taken its toll.” He said the coaching staff will evaluate every aspect of the program, especially the young guys and will try to work in players who can’t redshirt.
Still, Sarkisian was adamant that he was not looking to the future and would not make wholesale changes in the final four games.
