PULLMAN – Washington State middle linebacker Isaac Dotson didn’t dress for tonight’s game against Colorado and will miss his second straight game with an unspecified lower body injury.

Dotson left the field during the Cougars’ game at Oregon two weeks ago and hasn’t played a snap for WSU since, but was listed as the starter at Mike linebacker on the depth chart.

Redshirt freshman Justus Rogers started in Dotson’s place, alongside another redshirt freshman, Jahad Woods, who’s filled in for Peyton Pelluer since the senior captain sustained a season-ending injury week two against Boise State.

Another middle linebacker, senior Nate DeRider, hasn’t played since the Oregon game and is presumably out for the season with a lower body injury.
