SEATTLE – Washington coach Chris Petersen says indications are that left tackle Trey Adams intends to return for a fifth season after missing most of this one because of a back injury.
“I think that’s the plan right now,” Petersen said Monday. “Things are always fluid.”
Adams was a preseason AP All-American, but was injured the week leading up to the season opener against Auburn. Adams was coming off a torn ACL suffered midway through last season, but had recovered to where he was expected to play in the opener.
Petersen has been coy about Adams’ status all season, although there were indications he’s moving closer to being able to play. The Huskies are off this week and have at most four games left, meaning Adams could potentially play the rest of the season without jeopardizing his redshirt.
The Huskies are off this week, then host Oregon State on Nov. 17. Washington plays Washington State in the Apple Cup on Nov. 23 in Pullman. The Huskies have qualified for a bowl game and may still potentially play in the Pac-12 Championship game.
