Washington vs. Nebraska: Safties Nate Fellner, Taz Stevenson Likely Out on Saturday

Huskies head coach Steve Sarkisian spoke with Seattle Times' Husky Football blogger Bob Condotta on Thursday, with a bit of bad news for UW's secondary this weekend. Safeties Nate Fellner and Taz Stevenson will likely not be suiting up for Saturday's meeting with the Nebraska Cornhuskers, as well as a few more injury reports to divulge. 

Fellner won't be able to go at all this Saturday due to a bad hamstring he re-aggravated against Hawaii last week. He didn't take part of any drills on Wednesday, and is officially out for this week. As for Stevenson, he 'tweaked' his knee at practice on Wednesday, and is considered doubtful by Coach Sark:

he was really sore today. Not as bad as we initially thought but I'd bet he's doubtful.''    

That leaves spots open for others to make their mark like Justin Glenn, who hasn't started a game for the Huskies since back in 2009 against Notre Dame. Defensive end Talia Crichton is also 'a little banged up' according to Coach, but said they are likely to use Everrette Thompson a lot more at end this week along with Hau'oli Jamora.
