Washington may have won the game, but in the process it lost a significant piece of its passing attack.
In the second quarter of the Huskies’ matchup with Cal, Kasen Williams landed awkwardly as he attempted to catch a Keith Price pass. The wide receiver left the game and did not return, an air cast on the left foot serving as an ominous sign that the injury was indeed as significant as the replay showed.
In his postgame press conference, head coach Steve Sarkisian confirmed the worst, acknowledging that Williams had suffered a broken foot that could cost the junior the remainder of the regular season.
“We know there’s a break and a dislocation in his foot, so he’s going to be out quite some time,” Sarkisian said. “Obviously our thoughts and prayers are with Kasen. He’s a great kid. He’s already home. I know the guys are all headed over there to see him.”
Williams is currently third on the team in receptions (29) and receiving yards (241).
