Locker Suffers Muscle Strain

SEATTLE (Nov. 11, 2007) - University of Washington quarterback Jake Locker (Ferndale, Wash.) suffered a stinger and trapezius muscle strain in the second quarter of last night's Husky football game at Oregon State University.

He received immediate attention on the playing field by the UW sports medicine staff, OSU facilities personnel and local paramedics and was transported to Good Samaritan Hospital in Corvallis for testing.

He returned to the stadium and walked to the UW sideline late in the game and, after visiting with his teammates, coaches and family, returned to Seattle accompanied by a team doctor.

Today, he underwent additional testing, which confirmed the extent of the injury and began therapy. He is expected to have a full recovery.
