To turn a oft used aphorism on it’s head, the Washington State Cougars had an injury added to the insult of their 30-27 overtime loss to the Utah Utes as quarterback Conor Halliday suffered a lacerated liver during the game, placing him in the intensive care unit at a Pullman, WA hospital, according to The Spokesman-Review’s Vince Grippi.
Although the injury is very serious, Halliday is set to make a full recovery though he obviously won’t be available next week for their final game of the regular season. The Cougars have had more than their fair share of injuries this year a the quarterback position as starter Jeff Tuel went down early in the season with a broken collar bone, then was diagnosed with acute compartment syndrome after his return. All the best to both injured QB’s.
The Cougs have one more regular season game at the Washington Huskies next Saturday.
