Jeff Tuel Injury: Paul Wulff Says QB Out 5-8 Weeks

Jeff Tuel's injury just didn't look so good when it came out. His head coach Paul Wulff has this to say to Jason Puckett  of 950 KJR.

HC Paul Wulff says he's not 100-percent on Tuel injury but could be 5-6 weeks, perhaps 8 weeks at the most

Wulff did not rule out possibly using a redshirt for Jeff Tuel this season

Tuel will have another x-ray in two weeks, then they will re-evaluate after that

So circle these as one of the four games for which Tuel might return.

Oct. 15 Home versus Stanford Cardinal
Oct. 22 "Home" versus Oregon St. Beavers (CenturyLink Field in Seattle)
Oct. 29 Away at Oregon Ducks
Nov. 5 Away at California Golden Bears

Pretty brutal stretch for Tuel to try and get back in the thick of things. But there is some positive for the Washington St. Cougars. Tuel will miss the Colorado and UCLA games--both are road contests, but both should be absolutely winnable contests. If Washington State can get through their non-conference slate unscathed (their toughest contest is on the road against San Diego State), then they could probably be 3-2 or 4-1 before this brutal stretch, and would only need two more wins the rest of the way to get bowl eligibility. Not ideal, but certainly possible.
