With just about 24 hours left before kickoff with the Utah Utes, the Washington Huskies are looking to get themselves as healthy as possible for their crucial divisional matchup out in Salt Lake City.
Safety Nate Fellner is looking to suit up this Saturday after a hamstring problem back in week two has kept him sidelined ever since. Fellner has been practicing at full speed this week and is looking like a go against the Utes. Justin Glenn has filled in nicely in his absence, but will be relinquishing the position back to the Huskies second-leading returning tackler from last season this weekend.
Linebacker John Timu will unfortunately be doubtful this Saturday after a nasty practice hit left him on a stretcher heading to the hospital earlier this week. Timu has dressed but not participated in practice this week but is OK after his scary helmet-to-helmet hit in practice:
"He's got a sore neck," said head coach Steve Sarkisian. "I guess it would be equivalent to getting whiplash or something, if you were in a car accident, would be the best way to describe it. There's nothing structurally wrong. There's nothing neurologically wrong, which is obviously a great sign."
The redshirt Timu has 11 tackles already for the Huskies, though he will likely be replaced with Jamal Kearse agaist Utah this Staturday.
