There's lots going on in the UW secondary this week: finding a new starter at Jason Wells' strong safety spot, deciding between three potential starters at one cornerback position, and welcoming back returning veteran Jordan Murchison.
It looks like Darin Harris will start at safety, with Nate Williams likely to see time.
At corner, Byron Davenport seems to be opening some space on the depth chart between himself, Vonzell McDowell Jr., and Matt Mosely -- the lone Arizonan on the UW roster.
And finally, Murchison seems to have progressed enough in his short time back that he seems likely to travel and play Saturday at Arizona State. (You'll remember he was semi-suspended due to a variety of legal trouble early in fall camp.)
Also, Wells' surgery date has not been set, but coach Tyrone Willingham said it probably won't be this week.
Never miss a local story.
And while on the topic of injuries, freshman Eric Folk (back) has resumed kicking in practice, but Willingham added "it may not be the right thing for him to kick this year." Willingham hasn't ruled out using any of the true freshmen who haven't yet played – depending, as always, on what is best for the team and the player. But he added that he would like to avoid using such player this deep into the season.
