Cyler Miles has taken all the practice reps with Washington’s No. 1 offense in practice this week, and the Huskies (6-4, 3-4) continue to prepare as if the redshirt freshman quarterback will make his first career start against Oregon State (6-4, 4-3) Saturday night in Corvallis.
Keith Price hasn’t conceded his starting job just yet.
The senior quarterback hasn’t thrown a pass all week, but he said he has been rehabbing his injured throwing shoulder for three or four hours each day with the motivation to start Saturday night for UW.
“I’m good, I’m good,” Price said. “Just rehabbing like crazy. Just doing the best I can to get back out here and help my team. …
“I’m treating it like any other week,” he added. “I’ve been watching crazy hours of film and getting treatment — that’s pretty much all I’ve been doing. I still have a high belief that I’ll play, I’ve been rehabbing like I’m going to play, so hopefully I’m ready to go.”
An MRI over the weekend revealed no structural damage to Price’s shoulder. The Huskies’ career leader in touchdown passes has started 25 consecutive games; the last game he did not start was at Oregon State on Nov. 19, 2011, while nursing a leg injury. He did come off the bench that game in the fourth quarter of the Beavers’ 38-21 victory.
Price was 18 of 30 for 194 yards with one interception in UW’s 20-17 upset of No. 7 Oregon State in Seattle last year.
