Cyler Miles is expected to return as the Huskies’ starting quarterback next week at Colorado.

A week after suffering a concussion, Miles did not play in Washington’s 24-10 loss to No. 14 Arizona State on Saturday night at Husky Stadium. Redshirt freshman Troy Williams made his first career start in Miles’ place.

“Cyler should be back,” UW coach Chris Petersen said. “We don’t want a guy to have to lose his position to an injury; that’s not the right thing.”

Petersen said Miles was available Saturday night after being cleared from his concussion, but Miles hadn’t practiced “a whole lot” during the week leading up to the ASU game.

It will be homecoming for Miles, a sophomore from Centennial, Colo., in his first year as UW’s full-time starter.

In UW’s eighth game of the season, Williams became the Huskies’ third starting quarterback. That’s the first that’s happened at UW since 2004.

The Huskies also used sophomore Jeff Lindquist for several plays against Arizona State. He didn’t attempt a pass but ran twice for 10 yards.
