James Johnson and Jamaal Kearse are out indefinitely after both suffered injuries during Wednesday's fall camp practice.

The Washington Huskies football team wrapped up another fall camp practice Thursday and after practice there was some bad news on the injury front. Head coach Steve Sarkisian announced wide receiver James Johnson and linebacker Jamaal Kearse will both be out indefinitely after suffering injuries during Wednesday's practice.

Johnson's arm was in a cast Thursday after he suffered a dislocated wrist while Kearse suffered a stress fracture in his leg and was wearing a walking boot. The injuries could be major blows to the Huskies, especially if either player is forced to miss time during the regular season.

Johnson, a senior, is expected to be one of the Huskies top wide receivers, possibly even their No. 2 receiver behind Kasen Williams. Losing Kearse would be a major blow to the Washington defense as the linebacker has recently been working with the first team defense.

It wasn't all bad news on the injury front, however, as highly-touted freshman safety Shaq Thompson returned to practice and even recorded an interception.
