UW coach Tyrone Willingham has concluded his daily session with the media.
Of most note is that it is sounding increasingly as if tight end Michael Gottlieb may not be able to make the trip to Oregon. Gottlieb has been limited with a hamstring injury since Aug. 11.
"He's probably more questionable than he was yesterday,'' Willingham said.
If Gottlieb can't play, the tight end spot will be handled by Walt Winter, Kavario Middleton, Chris Izbicki, and maybe walk-on Romeo Savant, whom Willingham said could make the trip.
"We'll use all of those tight ends and that whole group may get some time,'' he said.
Willingham also revealed that redshirt freshman OT Mark Armelin has suffered a foot injury, which may help to explain why junior transfer Nick Scott has been listed as the backup at LT. Willingham said Armelin could be out "probably a little while'' at least one or two weeks.
Willingham said that RB Brandon Johnson had a good practice Tuesday night, saying the rest he has gotten of late appears to be paying off and that he is now doing more "of the things he is accustomed to doing.''
Willingham was also asked about Senio Kelemete and said that "as we learn more about him personally I would say that no, we're not surprised at what he has given us.'' Willingham said the commitment Kelemete showed in attempting to resolve his academic issues when he was briefly not allowed to enroll indicated the type of person he is.
