Locker story updated

Posted by Bob Condotta

Here's our updated story on the Jake Locker injury.

I'll let you read that for the details.

A quick take is that this still seems a little hard-to-read. The MRI isn't in yet, so there isn't any conclusive word on severity of the injury. And hamstrings are notoriously tricky anyway. They are not just a play-through-pain kind of thing.

A Locker injury of any kind is undoubtedly the worst fear of this program right now, so despite the efforts of all involved here today, I don't know how this can really be spun as a good thing in anyway. There may be no player more valuable to his team in all of college football.

On the other hand, UW coach Tyrone Willingham said he thought Locker would be able to play against Oregon, so the bigger question may be how much will he be impacted by missing practice, especially with trying to get timing down with all of those young receivers.

So for now, we reallly just have to wait-and-see.

As for a few other notes:

--- Willingham said OG Scott Shugert missed the last two days with a stomach illness. Shugert was back in the lunch room today.

--- CB Anthony Gobern is in red and while Willingham didn't specify the nature of the injury, Gobern was wearing tape on his knee.

--- UW is scheduled to holds its first full pads practice this afternoon.
