Keith Price threw warmup passes in the rain Tuesday morning during the start of Washington practices. His right thumb was taped, but as Steve Sarkisian said Monday, the senior quarterback looks like he’ll be fine come kickoff Saturday against Oregon (1 p.m., Fox Sports 1).

The Huskies didn’t practice any kickoffs during the 20-minute window open to media this morning, but they did a few punting drills. Defensive starters Shaq Thompson, Princeton Fuimaono, Will Shamburger and Cory Littleton took part in the punt coverage, after Sarkisian suggested on his radio show Monday that more of UW’s “best guys” would participate in special teams against the Ducks.

Morning links:

—- Sarkisian doesn’t take any offenses to the suggestion that UW’s offensive transformation looks a bit like Oregon’s. There’s also a note there that, yes, UW has heard from Pac-12, which, according to Sarkisian, concurred with the replay official’s decision to overturn Kevin Smith’s catch Saturday.

—- Price is No. 1 on this NFL list of rising pro prospects.

—- More on Price from The News Tribune’s Husky blog.
