Washington St. Cougars quarterback Connor Halliday suffered a lacerated liver during Saturday's 30-27 overtime loss to the Utah Utes and was placed in the Intensive Care Unit at a Pullman hospital afterwards. The team announced on Monday that Halliday has been released from the ICU but will stay at the hospital overnight.
Halliday will not be able to participate in Saturday's Apple Cup against the Washington Huskies, but his release from the ICU is welcome news. The young freshman handled quarterback duties for two straight games and posted respectable totals of 784 passing yards, six touchdowns and four interceptions.
Washington State reported that Halliday remains in stable condition following Saturday's injury. The Cougars play rival Washington this weekend and look to avenge last season's 35-28 loss to the Huskies. The Apple Bowl will be held at Washington this year, where the Cougars and Huskies have split the last two meetings.
