SEATTLE (AP) — Washington is preparing redshirt freshman quarterback Cyler Miles to make his first college start against Oregon State with the status of Keith Price uncertain.
Washington coach Steve Sarkisian said Monday the Huskies will prepare Miles to be the starter against the Beavers but are holding out hope that Price will be able to play.
Price injured his right (throwing) shoulder in the second quarter of last Friday’s loss to No. 14 UCLA and was unable to return to the game. Sarkisian said Price will not try to practice until Thursday, at which time the coach will decide on a starter.
Sarkisian said Price doesn’t have structural problems with his shoulder and that his ability to play will depend on how well he tolerates the pain.
