A few quick notes from the press conference — UW still aiming for a bowl

UW coach Steve Sarkisian’s regular Monday press conference is over for this week.
Here are a few higlights:
— Sarkisian reiterated the team’s goal of winning the last two to get to a bowl game, saying getting to a bowl “would be great for a lot of reasons.” Those include being a reward for the team, the extra practices that would help the team for the future, and indicating that progress is being made.
— He said the fact that there are now more bowl slots than ever doesn’t diminish what it would mean for the Huskies. “Not to me,” he said. “I want to get there. To me it’s a real reward for your hard work and your efforts not only for your kids and your players but everybody involved in your program. … It hasn’t lost its excitement for us, that’s for sure.”
— He said QB Jake Locker will have another X-ray taken today of his rib to assess where it is. But he said that’s mostly a precautionary deal and that he expects Locker to play against Cal. Locker did not suffer any re-injury against UCLA and was back at practice last night.
— The only new injury he detailed is guard Ryan Tolar, who he said is suffering from a sprained knee. He said Tolar is day-to-day and they’ll keep assessing it as the week moves forward. Backups there would be Greg Christine and Erik Kohler, presumably, though he didn’t say.
— He said Sean Parker didn’t play against UCLA since he didn’t have all the strength back in his shoulder due to a stinger. But he was back at practice last night and should be back this week.
— Locker also met with the media and said he feels good and did not have any setbacks from the UCLA game.
More later.
