Regardless of Crichton injury, Jamora should play more

A few minutes ago, the Huskies released their official depth chart for this week.

Sophomore Talia Crichton, who had a sack Saturday against Oregon State before leaving with a knee injury, is still listed as the starter at defensive end opposite Cameron Elisara. We'll know the Crichton's injury status shortly after noon today from UW coach Steve Sarkisian's press conference.

My guess is regardless of the significance of Crichton's injury, Jamora will play more. The true freshman has played in all six games, and had a team-best two tackles for loss against the Beavers, including 11/2 sacks.

He was certainly a prominent presence in the UW's fourth-quarter defensive stands.

Also safe to assume, D'Andre Goodwin has solidified his spot in this lineup. He's been fantastic the past three games, but quite possibly played his best all-around game Saturday - six receptions, 75 yards and a touchdown catch, but also an impact blocker, especially when he drew a defensive holding call after he split two defenders on a Jake Locker run in the second quarter.

Offensive-line depth chart remains the same as last week: Senio Kelemete at left tackle; Colin Porter at left guard; Gregory Christine at center; Ryan Tolar at right guard; and Drew Schaefer at right tackle.


* UW/Stanford game has been picked up by Versus. Kickoff is at 4 p.m.

* Jake Locker and Jermaine Kearse were both nominated for Pacific-10 Conference players of the week on offense (which USC quarterback Matt Barkley got).
