Juan Garcia just stopped by the media room and talked to a few of us and I'll try to provide a more detailed account later.
But in essence, he said his injury is pretty bad and it's unlikely he'll be able to play much for the Huskies this year.
He said his Lisfranc injury isn't as severe as Isaiah Stanback's but that "for an offensive lineman it might as well be.''
He said he has several courses of treatment available, including having surgery, and will decide on that in the next day or so.
He said a best-case scenario is that he would make it back by mid-season or the end of the season.
Garcia teared up at several points in the interview, saying that "it's just tough knowing I might never wear the Husky uniform again.''
He said there is no chance he would try to sit out this season and try to get a seventh year of eligibility.
He also said he suffered a badly sprained knee, though that wouldn't have been serious enough to impact the season.
He said the injury occurred on a goal-line play when he made a push into a group of defenders and they pushed back and that his foot "just got caught on the turf. ... I knew from the get-go it wasn't going to be good.''
