One of the biggest games of the Pac-12 season is almost here. As the Oregon Ducks and Washington Huskies prepare for a battle in Seattle, both have suffered injuries to their star players in recent weeks.
For Oregon, they will have both Darron Thomas and LaMichael James to wreck havoc on the Huskies defense. UW has quite a few of their talented wide receivers on the mend, though most will be game-time decisions. Here is Ted Miller's final injury report:
CB Cliff Harris, suspension, out
S James Scales, knee, out
P Jackson Rice, hip, probable
CB Anthony Gildon, undisclosed, probable
QB Darron Thomas, knee, probable
K Rob Beard, undisclosed, questionable
WR James Johnson, ankle, doubtful
DE Talia Crichton, knee, doubtful
WR Kasen Williams,ankle, probable
S Justin Glenn, foot, probable
WR Jermaine Kearse, ankle, questionable
Johnson is likely going to miss the game, though both Williams and (more importantly) Kearse are expected to play despite their ankle injuries. Chris Polk will do most of the heavy lifting for the Huskies, but if the team falls behind UO early, the passing game will become a critical aspect of the game for Washington.
