We just got our daily briefing from coach Tyrone Willingham.
The top news of the day was the loss of apparent No. 1 tight end Michael Gotlieb to a hamstring pull during practice Monday.
"It got kind of tight," Gottlieb said. "I kind of felt something. It was pretty bad at first, but it's camled down a lot."
His status -- all together now -- is day-to-day.
(And speaking of day-to-day, that also remains QB Jake Locker's status.)
Willingham said he is pleased with the work of the other TE candidates, including Walt Winter, Romeo Savant, Chris Izbicki and Kavario Middleton.
Willingham also said he is looking to the current crop of receivers to ease the loss of Curtis Shaw, who left the team Monday to deal with family issues. Willingham said the other candidates may not be able to match Shaw's "blazing speed," but that he will be looking for athleticism in the eventual replacement. He also indicated that the replacement will not come from the currently overcrowded ranks of tailbacks.
The Huskies webt ion to a single practice in the afternoon. They'll have morning and afternoon practices Wednesday.
Finally, I spoke with several defensive linemen today, and that will be the focus of my story in the Wednesday paper.
