FROM PULLMAN -- Move it along folks. Nothing to see here.
That, predictably, was the tone of the response by coach Mike Leach and quarterback Jeff Tuel to questions about Tuel's apparent leg injury, which he suffered on the first play of the fourth quarter. He didn't return to the game and was seen walking on the sidelines with an ice pack wrapped on the inside of his right knee.
“He took me out because I was just actually feeling too good,” Tuel said.
“We don’t have injuries around here so he’s 100 percent and I would think if anything, he can run a 4.5 now instead of a 4.7,” Leach quipped.
There obviously is no way of knowing how long Tuel might be out, or whether it's major or minor. Tuel was hit low after releasing the ball by Eastern Washington's Jerry Ceja. Tuel stayed on the turf for a while before walking off under his own power.
Trainers examined his right leg on the sidelines, then wrapped an ice bag around his knee area. Connor Halliday relieved him at quarterback.
