Elisara, Bruns expected at practice Tuesday

There wasn't much news from the UW football press conference today. A little more reaction to the big news that is now one week old -- UW's decision to dismiss coach Tyrone Willingham at the end of the season -- and what that meant to the team's concentration at USC and what it might mean this week against Arizona State.

The rest was mostly personnel updates:

Defensive tackle Cameron Elisara suffered a stinger in Saturday's loss at Southern California, but is expected to return to practice Tuesday.

Similarly, receiver Cody Bruns suffered a mild concussion at USC but is expected to be available Tuesday.

Cornerback Mesphin Forrester, who missed the USC game due to a knee injury could miss another game or two, but the injury isn't seen as long-term.

Willingham said he is waiting for direction from the university on how to deal with the high school recruits who have given their oral commitments to play at UW. He also said the next coach will decide whether to grant a fifth season to fourth-year players with eligibility remaining.
