Richardson hurt on play tangled with Williams

Editor's note: Thanks to Bob Condotta, of the Seattle Times, who was the pool reporter for practice Saturday night.

Serious concern exists for the status of cornerback Quinton Richardson (leg), who got rolled up with receiver Kasen Williams during night practice, and had to be carted off with what appeared to be a serious left leg injury.

He laid on the turf a good five minutes before UW athletic trainers helped him up.

"He’s getting X-rays," UW coach Steve Sarkisian said. "We can’t quite tell if it’s a high ankle sprain or if it has something to do with the bone. But he was obviously in pain.

"It looked more like Kasen landed on top of him so I don't know exactly if his foot was under him or not. Sometimes a knee right on the shin bone can cause a pretty good bruising there, or worse for that matter, so I don't know. They kind of just landed at the same time. But it's definitely a lower-leg injury, it's not up in the knee region which is a good thing."

UPDATE: Word late Saturday night from UW officials was that the X-rays on Richardson came back negative, and that his injury is considered either a contusion or a sprain.

Defensive tackle Alameda Ta’amu was taken to the locker room late in night practice with an injury to his right hand. Sarkisian revealed he might have suffered a slight fracture.

Receiver Devin Aguilar (leg) was held out of practice with a quadriceps strain.

Some controlled scrimmage stuff:

* Kieth Price hit Michael Hartvigson on a touchdown reception, and Chris Polk scored on a short-yardage, power run.

* Nick Montana connected with Evan Hudson for a score, then with Hartvigson. Running back Jesse Callier also had a TD scamper.
