Latest Stanback Update

According to head coach Ty Willingham Isaiah Stanback is out for this weeks game against California, and that further tests today will give them a better idea of how long he will be out for. Neither Stanback, or freshman Jake Locker were listed on today's depth chart. What that means is the Huskies are going to go with Bonnell, and have Durocher back him up for this Saturdays game. He did say that Locker would get more snaps in practice this week, and he did leave the door open that he could see action if needed.

As for the injury Ty once again reiterated that it was to the foot, and it involved quite a few torn ligiments. Once again the full extent of the injury won't be known till later this evening, or tomorrow morning. Husky Digest has a gruesome photo of the injury as it is happening. Isaiah's foot is contorted quite a bit as he looks like he was rolling his entire foot, and ankle. An injury of this nature can keep a player out 4-8 weeks if it is severe. Hopefully in a worst case scenario he has a good chance to be back for a bowl game, and the post season all star games. Best case maybe the final two games. Anyway they will have the official word soon.

Moving forward it seems Washington is going to go with Bonnell and try to avoid taking the redshirt off of Locker this week. I think it is the prudent thing to do in this case, and Carl deserves a fair shot.
