Sometimes when things go bad, they just go bad.
As you may have noticed, things are going bad with the Washington football program. And here's about as clear an indication as their is: in the last two weeks, UW has lost two starting defensive tackles in pregame warmups.
You may remember that Senio Kelemete hurt his knee while warming up before the Notre Dame game. And now it turns out that Cameron Elisara suffered a neck injury while warning up at USC. Elisara started the game, but was pulled due to that pregame injury.
Elisara is back working already this week and should be available for Arizona State this Saturday. Kelemete seems more likely for UCLA the following week.
Never miss a local story.
Cornerback Mesphin Forrester (knee) also is more likely for next week than this one.
In other health news, linebacker Donald Butler (neck) wore the protective red jersey in practice yesterday, however he is expected to be ready by Saturday.
Coach Tyrone Willingham said the Tuesday practice was a good one, but the schedule had to be altered due to thunder and lightning around the stadium.
And finally, Willingham was asked his thoughts about Tuesday's election of the first African-American president, Barack Obama.
He called it a "great day for America because now what is written in the Constitution comes to life."
