Posted November 16, 2011 on AP on Fox
Washington coach Steve Sarkisian was non-committal Wednesday about who the Huskies' starting quarterback will be Saturday against Oregon State. Redshirt freshman Nick Montana worked with the starting unit throughout practice. Season-long starter Keith Price moved around the sideline with a noticeable limp because of an injured left knee. He did not participate in drills. There is no structural damage in Price's knee, but there is significant swelling. Price has injured both ankles and knees this season. Sarkisian said he is likely to make a decision Thursday morning about the starter, though he said he will not announce it publicly. Sarkisian said he would like Price to take practice snaps Thursday whether it's determined if he'll start against the Beavers or not. If Montana does start Saturday, it will be his first college start. Montana, son of Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Montana, has appeared in four games this season.
