Washington Football: Huskies Lose 2 Starters For Season

|

It was a rough weekend for the Washington football program.

On Saturday night, the Huskies were upset on the road by the Arizona State Sun Devils. But the damage to the team’s national championship hopes took an even bigger hit.

Washington, which dropped from No. 5 to No. 12 in the latest AP Top 25 poll, also lost two starters for the remainder of the season.

On Monday, Huskies head coach Chris Petersen took the podium for his weekly press conference and announced that left tackle Trey Adams and cornerback Jordan Miller will miss the rest of the year due to injuries suffered in the loss.

Adams suffered a torn ACL in his right knee, while Miller suffered a gruesome broken ankle.

Washington will look to regroup this weekend on the bye, while preparing Adams and Miller’s replacements.

When the Huskies return to the field on Oct. 28, they will play host to the UCLA Bruins. Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. ET in Seattle.
