With injured senior quarterback Keith Price watching from the sideline, Washington’s comeback from a 20-point deficit came up short in a 41-31 loss to No. 13 UCLA Friday night at the Rose Bowl.
A day later, it remained unclear if Price would be able to return for the final two regular-season games of his UW career.
The Huskies’ career leader in touchdown passes was scheduled to have an MRI on his right throwing shoulder Saturday. Results were not immediately available, a UW spokesman said Saturday evening.
“I thought I’d be able to fight through the pain,” Price said, leaning against a rock wall outside a Rose Bowl locker room, his right shoulder wrapped in ice. “I’ve had plenty of pain (in his career). It just so happened to be in my throwing shoulder.”
If Price is unable to go, redshirt freshman Cyler Miles would make his first collegiate start at Oregon State on Saturday. Kickoff at Reser Stadium in Corvallis is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. for an ESPN2 broadcast.
The Huskies (6-4, 3-4 Pac-12) then close out the regular season at home in the Apple Cup on Nov. 29.
