Monday press conference notes

Here are a few quick notes from the Monday press conference.
— UW coach Steve Sarkisian said he is not counting Erik Kohler either in or out of this week’s game against Oregon State. He said Kohler will continued to be monitored throughout the week and a decision will come later. He missed the ASU game with mono. However, he is listed again as the backup LT with Greg Christine and Colin Porter at LG. Sarkisian said Porter and Christine will split snaps this week in practice and the assumption is Porter will play some against OSU. He said he decided not to play Porter in the game because he hadn’t had a full week to prepare (Kohler didn’t go out until Wednesday) and he didn’t think it would be fair to put Porter in that situation.
— He said QB Jake Locker will practice today and should be fine for Saturday’s game. However, Locker was at the doctor during the press conference, so he did not meet with us as he usually does. He instead will speak to the media after practice on Monday. Sarkisian said Locker has “the common cold” and nothing more serious.
— He said WR Devin Aguilar may be able to play this week. “As of right now, we aniticipate he will be able to play,” Sarkisian said.
— Sarkisian said he thought a few times about replacing Locker with Keith Price but ultimately said he “owed it” to Locker to keep him in the game for all he has done for the team and program through the years.
— Sarkisian said he didn’t feel the team had the same “energy” as the USC game the week before, whether due to the illness, the weather or whatever the case. He also said the game made apparent that UW’s “margin for error” is “minimal” in Pac-10.
— He said Cameron Elisara will continue to be monitored with his shoulder stinger but as of now, he’s on the depth chart.
— He said Sean Parker got 43 snaps in the game and was one of the bright spots of the game.
— He said Kevin Smith could be back this week.
I’ll have more from Sarkisian later.
