Jake Locker Back At Practice, Will Play Saturday

Jake Locker was back at practice for the Huskies today and is ready to play this Saturday against Oregon State. Locker had been dealing with a cold and a thigh bruise that affected his ability to run.

The Tacoma News Tribune’s Don Ruiz had the report from Montlake.

“It’s a significant bruise that has really affected his ability to run,’’ Sarkisian said.

Would it limit Locker in the game in terms of what he can do offensively, or what Sarkisian could call for in terms of plays?

“I wouldn’t think so,” Sarkisian said. “We’ll obviously monitor it closely during the game

Sarkisian doesn’t think Locker will be 100 percent for Saturday’s game, but he’ll be good enough to give it a go.
