Locker says no question he will play against Stanford

Just to reiterate the earlier Tweets and to make sure the info didn’t get lost in the previous entry, both UW coach Steve Sarkisian and QB Jake Locker said today that Locker will play Saturday against Stanford.
“I’ll be able to play,” Locker said.
He talked a little more openly about his injuries saying that his ribs are “pretty sore,” — though Sarkisian denied that any are broken. He also is dealing with the thigh bruise suffered against Arizona State.
“A little sore,” he said, describing his overall state. “But I think it’ll be good to get out and run around a little bit today (at Monday’s practice). … hopefully loosen up a little bit and get a chance to go out and run around and do some stuff today. I’ll just take it day to day.”
Asked how the ribs impacted him at Arizona, he said: “I didn’t run quite as much as I had been this week, but I thought for the most part that was really the only part of my game that was affected.”
In fact, he said he didn’t think it affected his throwing in any manner.
“I threw the one ball toward the end of the first half there, to Cody (Bruns, a 43-yarder), it felt good,” he said. “I probably could have thrown it a little bit farther if I needed to. Yeah, I have no doubt I can.”
Asked how his injury changed the offense, he said: “I don’t know if it affects our passing game as much as our running game. It just gives us another option when I’m able to run, and one that I wasn’t really able to use a whole lot on Saturday. Hopefully, I get to run around a little bit this week and get feeling a little bit better, and then we’re able to do what we’re accustomed to doing.”
Locker said the rib injury occurred against Oregon State but he’s not sure when. No matter the specifics, he said he plans to be out there Saturday, and isn’t frustrated by the aches and pains.
“It’s football. It’s part of the game,” he said. “Everybody deals with it at some point in their career. It’s something that you kind of have to deal with, I guess. There’s not a whole lot you can do about it. Do your treatment and get as well as you can for Saturday.”
