Jalen McMillan status reportedly updated prior to Washington-Stanford
Jalen McMillan has traveled with No. 5 Washington (7-0) for the Week 9 road contest at Stanford (2-5) with the intention to play, according to ESPN’s Pete Thamel.
The standout junior wide receiver missed last weekend’s 15-7 win vs. Arizona State and didn’t play much 2 weeks ago vs. Oregon because of a lingering knee injury. The injury occurred in mid-September since Washington’s victory at Michigan State.
Thamel also reports that sophomore wide receiver Germie Bernard traveled with Washington and will be a game-time decision.
The 6-foot-1, 192-pound McMillan has caught 20 receptions for 311 yards and 3 touchdowns. McMillan is averaging 15.6 yards per reception and hasn’t had less than 95 receiving yards in any of his 3 full games this season. Last season, McMillan recorded 79 receptions for 1,098 yards and 9 touchdowns.
McMillan is projected to be a top-100 prospect for the NFL draft, so this would be a welcomed return to the lineup for Washington as they strive for a Pac-12 title.
The 6-foot-1, 203-pound Bernard has tallied 17 receptions for 231 yards and a touchdown.
The all-time series with Washington and Stanford is extremely tight. Washington holds a 45-44-4 edge and has won the last 2 matchups between the programs.
Washington at Stanford is slated for a 4 p.m. PT kickoff and will be televised on FS1.
