Another potential starter has gone down -- and is listed as day to day -- for the Huskies. This time it's center Matt Sedillo, who had apparently moved into the starting job filling in for the injured Juan Garcia.
Sedillo was kept out of morning practice after suffering a concussion, but there is no indication that he will be out long. And perhaps just as encouragingly, Garcia seems to be coming along well enough in the rehab of his injured foot that he has emerged as a viable candidate to step back into his old job.
This follows a steady stream of Huskies who have gone down in recent days, including QB Jake Locker (hamstring), TE Matt Gottlieb (hamstring), RB Brandon Johnson (recovering from knee, newly slowed by calf), and CB Byron Davenport (ankle), along with the loss of LB E.J. Savannah to off-field issues and WR Curtis Shaw to family issues.
In all, that would be a half-dozen or more potential starters who probably couldn't go if the Oregon game was tomorrow. But it isn't until Aug. 30, and Willingham doesn't seem concerned that the injury toll has become anything threatening, or even particularly unusual, just yet.
In other Wednesday camp notes:
Former coach Don James was a visitor today. He watched some of the morning practice and visited with the coaching staff but didn't address the players.
Willingham said there may be a personnel addition this afternoon.
Willingham also said that the team is looking for a way to get Trenton Tuiasosopo onto the field. Even with the starting linebacker corps apparently set, that could be accomplished with a change of either position, or at least responsibility, moving him closer to the line -- or, of course, in a 3-4 set.
The Huskies will practice again this afternoon.
