Huskies DT undergoes surgery

10/16/2004 - Washington Huskies

SEATTLE -- Washington defensive tackle Dan Milsten was taken
off the field in an ambulance Saturday after breaking his left leg
and dislocating his ankle midway through the first quarter against
Oregon State.

Milsten was sandwiched while tackling the Beavers' Ryan Cole
from behind on a screen pass with 6:25 left in the quarter.

Medical personnel rushed onto the field and quickly loaded
Milsten onto a stretcher and into the ambulance.

He underwent surgery Saturday afternoon. His condition was not
known Saturday evening.

Oregon State won the game 29-14.

Washington receiver Charles Frederick reinjured his hamstring on
a punt return in the fourth quarter.

"I don't have an answer for it," Washington coach Keith
Gilbertson said. "We work hard and train hard and lift hard, but
it just sometimes happens."

In the past week, starting offensive tackle Khalif Barnes broke
his right wrist in practice and defensive lineman Donny Mateaki was
ruled out for the season with a foot tendon injury.
