Washington Huskies Without Williams

Junior wide receiver for the Washington Huskies, Kasen Williams, may be out the rest of the season with a broken foot. 
Williams suffered the injury in the win against Cal when he went up for a jump ball from Keith Price in the second quarter. He landed awkwardly on his foot and was taken off the field with his leg in an air cast. 
Washington Huskies head coach Steve Sarkisian addressed the media after the game, saying, "We know there's a break and 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."
Elise Woodward, the sideline reporter for Washington's radio team, reported that Williams has a Lisfranc injury. There has been no confirmation of this by Kasen, Sarkisian, or the team. 
Even if Williams has a mild fracture, it is unlikely he will return to the Huskies before the season ends. The team has just four regular season games left- against Colorado, UCLA, Oregon State, and rival Washington State. With their record, it is also unlikely they will have a playoff run. 
Williams earned honorable mention all-conference honors in 2012 and has 29 catches for 421 yards this season. He is third on the team in both receptions (29) and receiving yards (421).
