Starting middle linebacker John Timu has a bruised rotator cuff and is day-to-day, according to Steve Sarkisian. Sarkisian said there is no structural damage.

On to the quick-hits from today:

> Sarkisian said the red-zone offense needs to improve.  “Red-zone efficiency is not where we want it to be.” Although, he added this: “I’m not hitting the panic button about us in the red zone. We were just a tiny bit off.”

> Sarkisian said Dwayne Washington, who fumbled twice on two touches against Illinois, will be fine.

> Sarkisian said 35 carries for Bishop Sankey — who leads the country in rushing yards per game average with 184.5 — is too many. Expect a lot of Washington and Jesse Callier this weekend vs. what should be an overmatched Idaho State team.

> Sarkisian expects Austin Seferian-Jenkins to produce more than the 3-catch, 8-yard game he had Saturday. Said ASJ is still working his way back into things.

> Sarkisian on the Pac-12 as a whole, which had five ranked teams: “I’ve never seen it this deep.” He added he didn’t think “we’re there yet” as far as the national perception being what it could and should be.

> Sarkisian also said he doesn’t think there is any “love lost” between the Pac-12 and Big 10 after Northwestern, at the behest of the conference, backed out of an agreement to let Washington run its Friday walkthrough in their facilities and Wisconsin dealt with a bizarre ending to Saturday’s game vs. Arizona State.

> When informed Washington is ranked 17th, quarterback Keith Price said, “We’re ranked 17? That’s pretty awesome.” Evidence of how much he pays attention to such things.

> Another note on Price: I have him down for seven intentional throwaways this year, which would make him 51-for-59 through two games, an 86.4 percent completion rate.

> Washington’s Pac-12 opener vs. Arizona will kickoff at 4 p.m. on Fox.
