Steve Sarkisian noted this week that USC had 19 season-ending injuries last season and Washington had only one.
“You look at sports science right now and recovery is so critical to the body and the success,” he said. “We really invested in that a year ago at Washington. We had one season-ending injury a year ago at Washington. USC had 19. We were a no-huddle team a year ago, they were a traditional huddle team. So I think there are things we can do to preserve our players to get the best out of them.”
So does Kenny Bigelow’s knee injury count as one for next season in Sarkisian’s calculations?
