Los Angeles media reports that reserve quarterback Patrick Cowan worked with UCLA's No. 1 offense Tuesday, while junior starter Ben Olson sat out with what coach Karl Dorrell calls headaches.
Olson's availability for Saturday is not yet known.
Dorrell said nothing about that during a Pac-10 coaches' conference call Tuesday morning. However, he said starting left guard Shannon Tevaga (knee sprain) will not play this week.
Meanwhile, UW offensive coordinator Tim Lappano said Tuesday that injured tailback/returner Brandon Johnson is likely to be cleared to play this week.
Never miss a local story.
Lappano also said the Huskies plan to work more receivers and runners into their rotation to keep everyone fresh. He said four tailbacks will travel to Pasadena, and all are likely to see action, at least on special teams. … He also said speedy receiver D'Andre Goodwin is likely to get more work at UCLA.
