Washington coach Steve Sarkisian said during his Monday press conference that junior receiver Kasen Williams, who broke a bone in his lower left leg and also suffered a foot injury during Saturday’s game against California, will have an MRI exam today and is scheduled for surgery tomorrow.

Sarkisian said Saturday night that Williams will probably miss the rest of the season, but the coach said he can’t be certain about how much time Williams will miss until after the surgery.

“We’ll be able to talk more specifically after the MRI and then ultimately after the surgery of where he’s at,” Sarkisian said. “To Kasen’s credit, he’s in good spirits. He came to Coach (Don) James’ service yesterday, was with the team today, and he’ll take it like a champion. He’ll do whatever we need him to do to get healthy and he’ll be back.”

Sarkisian said the injury occurred when California cornerback Kameron Jackson landed awkwardly on the back of Williams’ leg, “and with all the force caused obviously the break in the leg and then the injury to the foot.”
