Connor Halliday Injury Update: WSU QB Leaves Intensive Care Unit After Suffering Lacerated Liver

Washington St. Cougars quarterback Connor Halliday suffered a lacerated liver during Saturday's 30-27 overtime loss to the Utah Utes and was placed in the Intensive Care Unit at a Pullman hospital afterwards. The team announced on Monday that Halliday has been released from the ICU but will stay at the hospital overnight.

Halliday will not be able to participate in Saturday's Apple Cup against the Washington Huskies, but his release from the ICU is welcome news. The young freshman handled quarterback duties for two straight games and posted respectable totals of 784 passing yards, six touchdowns and four interceptions.

Washington State reported that Halliday remains in stable condition following Saturday's injury. The Cougars play rival Washington this weekend and look to avenge last season's 35-28 loss to the Huskies. The Apple Bowl will be held at Washington this year, where the Cougars and Huskies have split the last two meetings.

Washington State QB Conor Halliday Suffers Lacerated Liver Against Utah

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.
