The Huskies are off the field following their Monday night practice.
What’s always the best news for the team — no new injuries.
As for the previous injuries, UW coach Steve Sarkisian said cornerback Quinton Richardson had an MRI on his injured left leg Monday night that will hopefully detail exactly what is wrong.
An X-ray revealed no break in the leg from an injury suffered when Richardson leaped high with receiver Kasen Williams for a pass in Saturday’s practice. Richardson’s foot was in a boot and he was on crutches on Monday.
Sarkisian said they are trying to see “if there is any other damage in there that could potentially be long-term.”
However, he sounded optimistic that Richardson won’t be out long, saying “I don’t think it’s a long, long-term thing. If it’s a few weeks it’s a few weeks. But I don’t think it’s anything like months.”
With Richardson out, sophomore Greg Ducre worked with the first team opposite Desmond Trufant. True freshman Marcus Peters and junior Anthony Gobern worked with the second team.
Also, defensive tackle Alameda Ta’amu suited up but did not practice after suffering a broken bone in his hand on Saturday. But Sarkisian said Ta’amu won’t be out long and the injury wouldn’t prevent him from playing.
You can see Sarkisian talk about that, as well as his thoughts on the team’s practice, Williams being used as a punt returner, Ducre’s progress, and when the team will scrimmage (Tuesday and Saturday) and more in the video below. I’ll also have more notes and quotes later:
