"He kind of tweaked that Achilles a little bit, pulled that gastrocnemius muscle. Anyway, he's supposed to practice today so he should be okay," said Doba.
Running back DeMaundray Woolridge (deep thigh bruise) returns to the starting lineup against Baylor. Fellow RB Dwight Tardy is battling an illness. He will make the trip to Seattle and will probably be a game time decision. Chris Ivory is out for Baylor with an ankle injury.
Safety Michael Willis (shoulder) will play after being out last week.
CBs Don Turner (hip contusion) and (high ankle sprain) Markus Dawes -- the starting left cornerback and first corner off the bench -- are both out for Baylor.
Brian Williams, who had a nice game against Idaho, will start in Turner's place opposite RCB Tyron Brackenridge for the second straight week. B.T. Walker, Courtney Williams and Ryan Kensok could all rotate in, with Williams returning to the lineup after missing the win over Idaho with a thumb sprain.
Turner could return for Stanford, with Dawes unlikely to be healed in time for the Pac-10 opener.
"Other than that, I think we're pretty doggone healthy," said Doba.
Andy Roof (thumb) had one of the pins removed yesterday and is scheduled to have the second pin taken out Wednesday. If all goes well, he would be able to practice Wednesday afternoon through Friday, and get some snaps in against Stanford. Doba did not mention Fevaea'i Ahmu (foot stree fracture) Thursday but the defensive tackle's return would appear to be at Stanford as well.
RECRUITING WILL TAKE center stage Friday evening during the Washington State's annual Seattle game trip to the west side. The Cougs will fly out of Pullman Friday in time for seven coaches, the maximum amount allowed at one time by the NCAA, to take in some of the state's high school football games prior to returning to the hotel for team meetings.
Former Cougar backup offensive lineman Spencer Hollison is playing this season at the University of San Diego, a Division I-AA team coached by former Chicago Bears quarterback Jim Harbaugh. This is Hollison's final season of eligibility. The Toreros, 11-1 last season, are the No. 1 ranked I-AA school in the mid-major classification.
