Leach: Halliday practiced for WSU

PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) — Washington State football coach Mike Leach says quarterback Connor Halliday is back practicing with the team this week.

Halliday was knocked out of last Saturday’s big loss to Stanford with an injury.

Leach, who doesn’t discuss injuries to his team, says Halliday practiced with the team on Sunday. But he provided no other details about the condition of the quarterback.

Leach says Halliday is a tough player. Backup Austin Apodaca saw action after Halliday left the Stanford game.

Washington State plays at California this Saturday.
