As his Washington career winds down, senior quarterback Keith Price said he's again doing everything he can to get ready to play Friday against Washington State.
Price, who didn't play last week at Oregon State while recovering from a shoulder injury, has thrown more this week than he did last week. But there's still no guarantee he'll start over backup Cyler Miles. That decision might again not be made until the hours leading up to the game.
"I’m definitely getting better," Price said. "I’ve been doing a little bit more each day, so it’s just a day-to-day process. It’s a serious injury. Any type of injury to anything on your throwing arm is going to be huge, so I’m just taking care of it as best as I can."
Asked if he expects to start, Price laughed and said "I expect to start every game."
He admitted it would be a disappointment if he didn't.
"Just the amount of hours and hard work I’m taking to sacrifice for my team," Price said. "You just feel useless when you’re on the sideline and there’s nothing you can really do. Especially when you’re losing. It’s all good when you’re winning. But when you’re losing, it’s not fun being on the sideline."
