Tuesday practice notes — Price says he feels good

The Huskies are off the field following their Tuesday practice, which probably was the wettest of the year. It was raining like crazy, and all of us in the media were looking longingly at the Dempsey Indoor just a few feet away from the East practice field.

But the rule in football is to practice in the weather you expect in the game (at least on the heavy physical days of Tuesday and Wednesday). So the Huskies braved the elements.

Afterward, we huddled under a tent for interviews, the only day this week UW players will be available to the media.

Among those who talked was quarterback Keith Price, who said his knee feels just fine after mostly sitting out last week.

“Oh yeah definitely, I feel a lot better,” he said. “I can move around more than I could last week. I couldn’t really run last week. .. I’m able to run around stretch with the team, just able to do a lot of stuff this week that I couldn’t do last week.”

Price said it was hard for him to stand and watch last week saying “I really wanted to go in, but coach didn’t feel it was best for my health.”

He also said he thinks the team’s mental health is good despite the loss at Oregon State.

“We’ve got to win this, no matter what, no matter who we are playing,” he said. “We’ve lost three straight — we can’t lose four straight.”

Not a lot else of note from practice. Left tackle Senio Kelemete was again absent for a personal/family issue but is expected back for the game. Safeties Justin Glenn and Will Shamburger were in red but did do some work. LB Garret Gilliland also practiced and seems on the road to recovery.

You can see some video below of Price, which also gives an idea of the conditions out there today. I’ll have some video and quotes a little later from Kasen Williams.
