Washington quarterback Keith Price had his right thumb wrapped in athletic tape again Wednesday, but he doesn’t expect the thumb to be a problem come kickoff Saturday against No. 2 Oregon (1 p.m., Fox Sports 1).
“It’s a little different,” he said of his grip on the football, “but if I’m healthy enough to come out here and practice, I have to be ready to perform (Saturday).”
Price injured his thumb during UW’s 31-28 loss Saturday at Stanford.
“It’s all right,” he said. “I’m practicing.”
Price hasn’t been limited this week, UW coach Steve Sarkisian said after Wednesday’s practice.
“Keith has taken every rep he would have normally taken,” Sarkisian said. “And I think he’s getting better and better throughout the week. He had an excellent practice today. I thought the team in general had a really good practice today, which was positive.”
