Scott Locker, Jake's father, talked to KJR and said that Jake's hamstring has suffered a 'slight tear'.
Presumably that's a more serious condition than was previously reported. Locker had an MRI done Friday morning but the results of that MRI have not been made public.
"He will be ready for the Oregon game, no question," Scott Woodward, acting Director of Athletics told Eklund at Picture Day. "He'll be day-to-day as to when he can practice."
UW Head Coach Tyrone Willingham met with the media earlier in the day, and when pressed for an answer about the MRI results seemed to intimate that the team was moving on without Locker and that he didn't care about the results of the MRI and the prognosis from the medical staff.
"It's a slight tear, but it's on the outside of the leg," Scott Locker told Eklund. "The doctors told me that if he had to get a tear, that's the best place to get it because it heals faster."
Locker added that there isn't a timeline for when Jake could practice, but they are hoping for the end of next week. It all will be determined by the healing process.
