Quintin Daniels, who suffered a leg injury at Arizona State, will miss the Oregon game on Saturday, and likely significant time beyond that.
Otherwise, coach Tyrone Willingham said the team is in good health heading into the Oregon game.
That's more than can be said for the Ducks, who lost No. 2 tailback Jeremiah Johnson (knee) and No. 2 receiver Cameron Colvin (broken ankle) for the season in the Washington State game.
Other news from today's press conferences with Willingham and another with Oregon coach Mike Bellotti.
*UW coaches selected tailback Louis Rankin as player of the week on offense, Greyson Gunheim on defense and punter Jared Ballman on special teams. Rankin won the honor despite getting only three carries in the second half, as coaches worked J.R. Hasty and Brandon Johnson into the mix. On Monday, however, Willingham seemed uncertain that such a rotation will continue, saying only that the tailback mix "will work itself out."
*Asked why Oregon has dominated Washington the past could of seasons, Bellotti indicated that maybe UW coaches haven't fully caught up do defending the spread offense. I really didn't think he meant it as an insult, but it kind of came out that way, and Willingham seemed to bristle a bit when it was relayed to him later.
*No, no one has yet come out with a good reason for the Huskies' third-quarter troubles during this four-game losing streak. After ruling out either poor coaching adjustments or player disinterest on Saturday, Willingham added Monday that he also doesn't think it has a physical root such as lack of conditioning or even lack of depth. He would only conceed that the defense may tire a bit when the opponent's time of possession begins piling up.
