Washington Huskies Injury Update: Steve Sarkisian Confirms Colin Tanigawa Will Miss Season

During his weekly radio show on Monday, Washington Huskies head coach Steve Sarkisian confirmed that sophomore offensive lineman Colin Tanigawa would miss the rest of the 2012 season following a knee injury believed to be suffered in the game against LSU.

When asked about the team's injuries, he reiterated the news regarding Tanigawa and went on to state that linebackers Nate Fellner and Jamaal Kearse should be ready to go for the game against the Stanford Cardinal. Kevin Smith, a starting wide receiver should also return to action at The Link on Saturday.

In Tanigawa's absence, the offensive line will be even more inexperienced for the remainder of the season. One of the other starting lineman, Colin Porter, was forced to walk away from the game due to chronic shoulder ailments. Dexter Charles impressed Sarkisian in the win against Portland, and will have to step up moving forward.

"[Charles] is a nasty guy and plays it physically the way you'd like to see it played," said Sarkisian.
