Quarterback Jake Locker apparently felt well enough Monday to play a little joke at a media gathering.
He made a point of turning his whole body, rather than his neck, when looking in various directions. When this was pointed out, he broke into a laugh.
"I'm just joking around with you guys," he said. "I was actually thinking about wearing the neck brace for you guys."
When seriously addressing his health, he said that he feels much better than last week and hopes that his coaches will trust him when he tells them he feels ready to play.
Coach Tyrone Willingham said he hasn't yet decided between Locker and Bonnell, but that he will announce his stater once that is decided upon, and that he isn't delaying the announcement to complicate Washington State's preparations.
