Starting Washington TB, receiver and guard out for Oregon game
SEATTLE -- Washington won't have starting tailback Rich Alexis, receiver Charles Frederick and guard Tusi Sa'au when Oregon visits Saturday.
Coach Keith Gilbertson said Alexis reinjured a bruised thigh this week in practice. Alexis, who missed last weekend's 43-23 loss to USC, is Washington's leading rusher with 566 yards and four touchdowns in seven games.
Frederick, who ranks second on the team with 39 receptions, sustained a bruised chest and sprained left shoulder in the first quarter against the Trojans and didn't return.
"It's not good," Gilbertson said. "I don't think you'll see him unless he rapidly recovers."
Sa'au has been slowed by back pain, and Gilbertson said his season could be over.
Starting cornerback Roc Alexander (shoulder) and reserve Chris Massey (hernia) didn't play last weekend and are expected to miss the Oregon game. Sam Cunningham, a junior, will start for Alexander.
