NFL Draft Scout's Rob Rang projects the Jets to take Washington redshirt sophomore CB Byron Murphy with the seventh pick in his latest mock draft.

When you give up 41 points to a team quarterbacked by Matt Barkley, you might need some help on the defensive end. In all seriousness, the Jets obviously have a need at cornerback, and many analysts believe that Murphy has the most upside of any prospect at that position right now. He's been an analytical star, and the tape will back up what those numbers say, with a few exceptions. He has two years of eligibility left after this year, but it wouldn't be a surprise if Murphy was playing on Sundays at this point next year.

Washington HC Chris Petersen told reporters during Monday's press conference that Washington senior DL Shane Bowman is "getting close" to a return.

Bowman broke his foot against Arizona State on September 22, and he hasn't been able to play since. Josiah Bronson has taken Bowman's place, but the Huskies have clearly missed the 6-foot-4, 291-pound senior. He's not a lock to return against Oregon State on Saturday, but there's at least a chance he returns, and if not, he could play in the Apple Cup against Washington State.

Washington HC Chris Peterson said Monday that he believes senior LT Trey Adams (back) will return for a fifth season in 2019.

Adams (6'7/330) has not appeared in a game this season, as he suffered a back injury days prior to the Huskies' season opener against Auburn and ultimately had to undergo surgery. When asked about the senior left tackle's status for next season, Peterson said that he "thinks (returning for a fifth season) is the plan." Adams entered the season considered by some to rank among the top offensive tackles in college football.

Washington senior QB Jake Browning completed 16-of-27 passes for 194 yards with a touchdown and also rushed for a score in a 27-23 victory over Stanford on Saturday.

Browning started out red-hot; completing 7-of-9 passes to start the game, and opening the contest with a rushing touchdown. He threw his touchdown pass on the next drive, but after that, Stanford pressured the heck out of Browning, and he was forced to throw the ball away more often than he'd like. Still, a nice bounceback for the senior after the (probably unjustified) benching last week. Browning gets a week off before taking on Oregon State on November 17.
Nov 4 - 12:38 AM

Washington senior RB Myles Gaskin ran for 148 yards and a touchdown in a 27-23 victory over Stanford on Saturday.

After missing the previous two games -- and a large portion of another -- with a shoulder injury, Gaskin (5'10/193) was back at it, and did he ever make a difference in this one. He helped the Huskies build a 21-0 lead, and he scored his sixth touchdown of the year on a six-yard run in the second quarter. Gaskin is as good as they come when he's healthy, and he sure looked healthy against the Cardinal. The 7-3 Huskies take on Oregon State on November 17 after a bye.

Washington senior S Jojo McIntosh was ejected from Saturday's game against Stanford for targeting.

Because the infraction occurred during the first half, McIntosh will not miss any playing time beyond the remainder of Saturday's game. With 36 starts to his credit, the senior safety is one of Washington's most experienced defenders. As a result McIntosh's ejection, sophomore Brandon McKinney was inserted into the lineup.
Nov 3 - 10:08 PM

Washington sophomore TE Hunter Bryant (knee) took part in pregame warmups in advance of Saturday's game against Stanford.

Bryant has yet to play this season due to an offseason knee injury, but he has been getting closer and closer over the past few weeks. He will make his debut on Saturday barring a late scratch. UW will also be getting RB Myles Gaskin (shoulder) back in this one.
Nov 3 - 8:56 PM

Washington senior RB Myles Gaskin (shoulder) appears to be ready to go for Saturday's game against Stanford.

According to reports Gaskin was the running back for Washington's first 11-on-11 snap during the team's final warmup period, making it likely that he gets the starting nod against the Cardinal. The senior running back missed Washington's games against California and Colorado as a result of the injury. Even if Gaskin's available, Salvon Ahmed should continue to receive reps in the backfield.
Nov 3 - 8:51 PM

Washington senior RB Myles Gaskin (shoulder) went through the first round of pregame warmups ahead of Saturday's game against Stanford.

Gaskin, who Washington HC Chris Petersen said earlier in the week was "close-er-er" to making a return, is still considered to be questionable for Saturday's game. If the senior running back is forced to sit out for another week, look for Salvon Ahmed to make another start for the Huskies.
Nov 3 - 7:41 PM

Washington HC Chris Petersen said that sophomore TE Hunter Bryant (knee) is "close-er-er" to a return.

Petersen said likewise with Myles Gaskin, who is dealing with a shoulder injury. Both players have progressed over the practice week in advance of Saturday's game against Stanford, but Coach Pete's being coy enough here that it's difficult to tell how close either player really is to playing. Bryant has yet to take the field this season due his ongoing recovery from an offseason knee injury. The Huskies are also playing a little bit of redshirt math, here. Bryant should be able to play at some point before campaign's end. We'll see about this weekend.
Nov 1 - 5:14 PM

Washington HC Chris Petersen said that senior RB Myles Gaskin (shoulder) is "close-er-er" to a return than he was earlier in the practice week.

Coach Pete said on Sunday that Gaskin was "close" to making his return from a shoulder injury which has prevented him from playing in either of UW's last two games, hence his somewhat cute response above from Thursday's comments to the media. It remains unknown if Gaskin will be available for this weekend's game against Stanford. If the senior back can't play in that contest, Salvon Ahmed would draw the starting call.
Nov 1 - 4:51 PM

Washington senior LB Ben Burr-Kirven is one of the 20 semifinalists listed for the Bednarik Award.

Burr-Kirven is one of two Huskies on the list, as he's joined by defensive back Byron Murphy. Alabama (Quinnen Williams, Deionte Thompson) and Mississippi State (Montez Sweat, Jeffery Simmons) are the other schools that have multiple players on the list. Burr-Kirven should be considered among the favorites, as he's been one of the most productive defensive players in college football. The full list of nominees can be found in the link below.
Oct 29 - 5:33 PM

Washington HC Chris Petersen told reporters at his Monday press conference that sophomore TE Hunter Bryant (knee) is getting closer to a return.

Bryant did travel with the team against Cal -- a pretty big surprise considering he was all but ruled out -- but he didn't part in the final warmups and was always unlikely to play. We'd be surprised if Bryant was active for Stanford, but with the new redshirt rules, there's a good chance the Huskies will have their star tight end for the final few games while still being able to give him another year of eligibility.

Washington senior RB Myles Gaskin (shoulder) is 'close' to returning according to HC Chris Petersen.

Petersen has gone through warmups in the previous two games against Colorado and California, and he hasn't played in both. It sounds like the Huskies are being extra cautious with the senior tailback, and his status for Saturday against Stanford in a must-win game for Washington is very much up in the air. It'd be a big surprise if Gaskin was anything but a game-time decision.
Oct 29 - 2:52 PM

Washington HC Chris Petersen told reporters at his press conference that senior QB Jake Browning is "absolutely" his starting quarterback for Saturday.

This should be an obvious point, but it was a worthwhile question to ask after Browning was bench for two series in the 12-10 loss to the Golden Bears on Saturday. Petersen said the benching was more about the offense than Browning, which is a weird thing to say. His replacement, redshirt freshman Jake Haener, threw a costly interception that was returned for a touchdown. The Huskies can still win the Pac-12 North if they win out, but they need Browning -- and the rest of the offense -- to play much better.
