UW coach Tyrone Willingham had no update to pass along today on QB Jake Locker because he said he hadn't seen the results of the MRI yet.
Willingham said the results are in, he just hadn't seen them yete.
"It's not a big concern for me,'' he said, adding that he didn't think it a big deal because he's confident Locker will return to action fairly quickly.
"He'll be well when he's well,'' Willingham said. "He'll be ready to go.''
Pressed on that, Willingham said: "We said it'd be day by day. He'll be ready pretty soon and away we go.''
And pressed further, Willingham said "Our medical staff knows that (the results of the MRI). I haven't asked them about that.''
Willingham was slightly more forthcoming about other injuries, saying that RB Brandon Johnson is still struggling to recover from off-season knee surgery and CB Byron Davenport is ailing with an ankle injury suffered Friday.
"Brandon was a little slower today than we thought but he'll be okay,'' Willingham said. "It's just some complications with it.''
In better injury news, Willingham said center Juan Garcia said has been able to gradually increase his work in practice without suffering any re-injury of any kind.
"None that he's spoken of,'' Willingham said, adding that Garcis is "just slowly'' progressing back into action.
On other matters:
--- Willingham said the team is "starting to get into the rhythm of camp. Yesterday picked it up, today had wonderful energy and enthusiasm so they are starting to get into a rhythm.''
--- Asked about the receivers, Willingham said "I've been pleased. There's not a disappointment in the group.''
--- Willingham praised the play of Ronnie Fouch and said he is getting "the lion's share'' of the reps that Locker would normally have gotten.
--- Reporters saw WR D'Andre Goodwin walk by with ice wrapped around his shoulder. Willingham didn't mention anything about that during his session.
