Washington Husky quarterback Jake Locker has been dealing with flu-like symptoms for about a week, forcing him to limit his running against Arizona State Saturday and having a significant impact on his conditioning. Tuesday, the senior quarterback worked on the side as the Huskies went through team drills.
The Seattle Times’ Bob Condotta had the report from practice.
And while Jake Locker had full pads on, he didn’t really fully participate, with Keith Price and Nick Montana taking all of the snaps during the final team period. Locker did take part in lots of the individual drills.
There’s no reason to think Locker won’t play Saturday against the Oregon State Beavers, but if he doesn’t continue to improve the Huskies will have to change their game-plan.
We’ll find out more about Locker as the Huskies hit the field for practice ahead of Saturday night’s game against Oregon State.
