Here’s the full transcript from Steve Sarkisian’s Thursday session with reporters.
In addition to the update on Keith Price covered in the previous post, Sarkisian said LT Micah Hatchie, LB John Timu and S Will Shamburger should all be “good to go.” Shamburger missed the last two games with an undisclosed injury, and Hatchie and Timu were banged up last week.
Steve Sarkisian met with reporters, as usual, after Wednesday’s practice. Here’s what he said.
(Road woes still a question) “And it’s going to be until we do something about it, quite honestly. Inevitably, great teams have the ability to go on the road and beat really good football teams and beat potentially great football teams, and we just haven’t quite gotten there yet. We’ve played hard. We’ve had moments of really good football. Unfortunately, we haven’t put together a complete game of four quarters against really good teams on the road. And that’s what it takes.

For the second time this season, Keith Price’s availability for Saturday’s game is unknown as the week begins.
Price injured his right throwing shoulder late in the first half of Washington’s loss to UCLA on Friday, and the inflammation discovered after an MRI exam will keep him out of practice until Thursday.
That’s the key day for Price, who won’t throw a pass until then. If he throws well enough on Thursday to convince UW coach Steve Sarkisian that he can play, then he’ll play. If not, redshirt freshman Cyler Miles will make his first career start.
Sarkisian went into considerable depth when discussing Price’s injury with reporters on Monday. Here’s what he said: Read more »
A Washington spokesperson confirmed Sunday night that UW coach Steve Sarkisian said quarterback Keith Price won’t throw this week until Thursday’s practice. The Huskies will then determine whether he’s healthy enough to play Saturday at Oregon State.
The Seattle Times first reported the news earlier Sunday. Price injured his throwing shoulder late in the second quarter of UW’s 41-31 loss at UCLA on Friday night, and didn’t return for the second half. According to The Times, Sarkisian said an MRI exam of Price’s shoulder revealed “a lot of inflammation.” Read more »
FROM PASADENA — There’s no definitive word yet on the extent of Keith Price’s right shoulder injury. Washington coach Steve Sarkisian said afterward that X-rays were negative, and that Price will undergo an MRI exam tomorrow.
For now, the senior quarterback knows that he’s sore — sore enough that he couldn’t throw — and that’s about it.
That much was obvious when Price attempted a warm-up throw on the sidelines shortly after he was injured. Immediately after throwing that warm-up pass, Price turned away and dropped his shoulder, wincing in obvious pain.
He said he knew he wasn’t going to be able to play “pretty much when I threw that pass. I thought I’d be able to fight through the pain. I’ve had plenty of pain. It just so happened to be in my throwing shoulder.” Read more »
