RB Jesse Callier ruptures Achilles, will miss rest of season; WR John Ross practices

Washington coach Chris Petersen said Monday that Huskies running back Jesse Callier, a fifth-year senior, ruptured his Achilles tendon on the opening kickoff of Saturday's game against Georgia State and will miss the rest of the season.

The injury almost certainly ends Callier's career, as it is extremely unlikely he will be granted a sixth year of eligibility despite the fact that he missed the 2012 season due to a torn anterior cruciate ligament suffered in that season's opener. Petersen said that's not something the Huskies have looked into, and that the conclusion as of now is that Callier's career is over.

Petersen said receiver John Ross, who did not play against Georgia State with a leg injury, practiced on Monday morning and "seemed OK." His availability for this week's game against Stanford is uncertain, but his participation in practice is a good sign.
