While they were able to halt their three-game losing skid by beating the California Golden Bears 41-17, Saturday night’s win was a bittersweet one for the Washington Huskies. Junior wide receiver Kasen Williams, who is third on the team in both receptions (29) and receiving yards (421), broke his foot in the second quarter after coming down awkwardly from a jump-ball against Cal cornerback Kameron Jackson.

Washington head coach Steve Sarkisian addressed the situation after the game:

We know there’s a break and a dislocation in his foot. So he’s going to be out quite some time. Obviously our thoughts and prayers are with Kasen. He’s a great kid. He’s already home. I know the guys are all headed over there to see him (The News Tribune).

Although the severity of the injury is unknown at the time, it seems unlikely that Williams will be able to return before the season ends. The Huskies only have four regular season games — against Colorado, UCLA, Oregon State, and rival Washington State — remaining, and it’s likely they’ll be stuck in an early-December bowl game due to their record.

We wish Williams the best in his recovery.
