Happy Monday, everyone.

Chris Petersen will hold his usual Monday press conference at 1 o’clock this afternoon. He will surely be asked about a suddenly thin backfield, with injuries to QB Cyler Miles (concussion) and UW’s top two running backs, Dwayne Washington (chest) and Lavon Coleman (shoulder). Redshirt freshman QB Troy Williams and fifth-year senior RB Deontae Cooper finished the Oregon game in the UW backfield.

The Huskies were already struggling in the run game, before those injuries, and have averaged just 2.9 yards per rush in three Pac-12 games.
