Middle linebacker John Timu, Washington’s leading tackler in 2012, is day to day with a “deep” bruise in his rotator cuff, UW coach Steve Sarkisian said during his Monday press conference.

“(He’s) getting better,” Sarkisian said. “His arm is improving. I would say he’s day to day, quite honestly of how, the inflammation in the shoulder goes, but there’s nothing structurally wrong in there, which is a great sign.”

Timu injured his shoulder sometime in the first half of UW’s 34-24 victory over Illinois on Saturday. He did not play in the second half.

Backup middle linebacker Thomas Tutogi played most of the second half, finishing with four tackles.

Timu had a team-high 13 tackles in the Huskies’ victory over Boise State on Aug. 31.
