SEATTLE (AP) — Washington was already facing a difficult task with a game against No. 3 LSU. Now they'll be doing it without a starting offensive lineman and a co-starting running back.
Huskies coach Steve Sarkisian on Monday said that running back Jesse Callier will miss the rest of the season after suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in last Saturday's opener against San Diego State. The Huskies will also be without starting right tackle Ben Riva, who fractured his forearm against the Aztecs.
Additionally, Sarkisian said that defensive end Hau'oli Jamora will also miss the rest of the season after knee surgery last week revealed an ACL tear.
With Callier out, the Huskies will rely on sophomore Bishop Sankey to carry the load in the backfield. Sankey had a career-high 22 carries for 66 yards in the opener.
