Tuel might return down the road for Cougars

It’s possible Washington could be seeing Jeff Tuel at quarterback for Washington State in the Apple Cup at CenturyLink Field Nov. 26.

The question is, can he save the Cougars by himself? They fell to 3-6 Saturday in losing 30-7 to Cal in San Francisco.

Afterward, WSU coach Paul Wulff said, “He’s feeling better. We’re going to evaluate him (Sunday). There’s a good chance he’ll be out at practice this week.”

Wulff said the chance of Tuel playing against Arizona State Saturday night in Pullman was “slim.”

It’s been a star-crossed season for the talented junior quarterback. Ill for the opener against Idaho State, he came into the game on the third series and shortly thereafter, cracked his collarbone and was out until the Stanford game Oct. 15. He was clearly rusty then, and after playing a half against Oregon State Oct. 22, left the game with soreness in the area of the collarbone, and also a calf injury.

There was speculation that he might be out for the season, but Wulff seemed to hint Saturday that he’s going to make it back onto the field at some point this year.
