Banged, Battered, and Bruised

Not only are the Bruins suffering from bruised egos after the Utah game, they also have a growing list of players who are banged up physically. Here is the current group of guys on the injured list:

Shannon Tegava (OL). Knee, minor tear in MCL. Out for two weeks.

Ben Olson (QB). Concussion. Questionable for Washington game.

Marcus Everett (WR). Ankle Sprain. Out for Washington, should be back soon.

Michael Pitre (FB). Knee. Minor participation in practice. Likely out for a few more weeks at a minimum.

Brigham Harwell (DT). Knee. Out for a month and maybe the rest of the season.

Aaron Whittington (LB). Concussion. Out for Washington and maybe longer.

Nickola Dragovic (DE). Concussion. Likely out for Washington.

Brett Locket (DB). Hamstring.

With all of these injuries, we'll have some new faces on the field for the Huskies; that might be just what the doctor ordered. If Ben does not practice by Thursday then Pat Cowan would likely get the start this weekend. P.J. Irvin will take over for Shannon Tegava at guard and Kyle Bosworth will step up for Whittington. Osaar Rasshan will pick up some of Everett's minutes. Brian Price might also get into the mix this weekend and rotate in to fill Harwell's spot. At Tuesday's practice Rasshan and Price looked good, so let's hope they make the most of their new found playing time.
