Washington State redshirt senior Connor Halliday "could rise up charts with a big senior campaign," writes CBS Sports' Rob Rang.
Halliday set a Cougars' record with 4,597 passing yards last season and tied Ryan Leaf's single-season record of 34 touchdown passes. "Halliday has plenty of arm strength and is willing (too willing, in fact) to take chances, which resulted in 22 interceptions a year ago -- his first season as the Cougars' full-time starter," wrote Rang. "He typically throws in-breaking routes like slants and posts well, showing zip and good placement but can get scatter-shot, especially when he doesn't set his feet. Halliday will occasionally drop it in the bucket on touch throws but too often throws long. He possesses a spindly frame and isn't particularly elusive though he has decent speed for the position." Halliday is an outstanding fantasy quarterback as Mike Leach's trigger man. Jul 1 - 9:28 PM

Quarterback Connor Halliday practiced in full pads Tuesday for the first this spring as he continues to progress in his recovery from a lacerated liver.

Halliday suffered his injury late last season in a sparkling effort against Arizona State. It’s been a lengthy healing process and coach Mike Leach and his staff see no need to risk aggravating the injury. As such, Halliday did not participate in all team drills, but he was very active in working with the quarterbacks.

According to an email released by the Washington State Sports Information Department on Tuesday night, quarterback Connor Halliday was released from a local hospital where he was being treated for a lacerated liver.

The redshirt freshman played the whole game and took several hard hits in an overtime home loss against Utah. He was admitted to a local hospital where he was diagnosed with a lacerated liver. Halliday was named Pac-12 Player of the Week on Nov. 12 when, after taking over for Marshall Lobbestael in the first quarter, he threw for 494 yards and 4 TDs in a 37-27 win over Arizona State.

Washington State freshman quarterback Connor Halliday remained in intensive care Sunday night after suffering a lacerated liver in Saturday’s overtime loss to Utah.

Halliday’s first start was certainly memorable. He played through the injury and finished the game completing 21-of-48 for 290 yards and 2/4. He was then taken to the hospital. Halliday came on in relief of Marshall Loebestaal against Arizona State on Nov. 12 and threw for 494 and 4 touchdowns in a 37-27 win. The effort earned him the start against the Utes, but now Loebestaal will lead the Cougars on Saturday in the Apple Cup against Washington.
