The news wasn’t all good following Washington’s 41-17 victory over California on Saturday night.
UW coach Steve Sarkisian said afterward that junior receiver Kasen Williams is probably lost for the season after breaking a bone in his left foot when he landed awkwardly trying to catch a pass during Saturday’s second quarter.
Williams was taken to Harborview Medical Center, but had already returned home by the time Sarkisian addressed the media.
“We know there’s a break and a dislocation in his foot, so he’s going to be out quite some time,” Sarkisian said. “Obviously our thoughts and prayers are with Kasen. He’s a great kid. He’s already home. I know the guys are all headed over there to see him.
“… Stuff like that unfortunately happens in our game. That’s part of it and we’ll take care of him physically and mentally and get him back and he’ll be a great player for us in the future.”
If Williams is indeed done for the year, he finishes with 29 catches for 421 yards and a touchdown.
