Video: Sarkisian talks after Saturday practice

The Huskies are off the field following their Saturday night practice in front of a few hundred fans at the venerable stadium.

And for the first time this fall, there may have been a significant injury as starting cornerback Quinton Richardson was carted off about midway through with an injury to his lower left leg. He was defending Kasen Williams one-on-one in a passing drill and they each went up for a pass and came down together. Richardson immediately grabbed his leg and stayed on the ground and trainers rushed out and it took a good five minutes or so before he was helped off.

Here’s what UW coach Steve Sarkisian said afterward:

“He’s getting X-rays. We can’t tell quite yet if it’s a high ankle sprain or if it has something to do with the bone but he was obviously in pain, but it’s too early to say exactly what it is. I’ll know more in a couple of hours I would imagine. It looked more like Kasen landed on top of him, so I don’t know exactly if his foot was under him or not. Sometimes a knee right on the shin bone can cause a pretty good bruising there, or worse for that matter, so I don’t know. They kind of just landed at the same time. But it’s definitely a lower-leg injury, it’s not up in the knee region which is a good thing.”

Also, Alameda Ta’amu was taken to the locker room late with a hand injury. Here’s what Sarkisian said:

“He injured his hand. I’m assuming the injury of what it was he’s probably got a small fracture in his hand. He’s a defensive linemen, he’ll be okay. And Devin Aguilar actually had a little bit of a glute strain so we held him out.”

He also said there is no new news on the three players not yet eligible to practice: “Not yet. Counting the days now, whatever that day was that I said the NCAA said it would be within seven business days, we are three or four into it now.”

Here’s more video of Sarkisian after practice, talking also about the intensity of the workout, including a short-yardage goal-line drill, as well as his thoughts on the progress so far of Nick Montana:
