Kalen DeBoer gave some clarity on whether two key players will be available for the Huskies this week when he met with reporters Monday for his weekly news conference.

DeBoer said that Washington wide receiver Jalen McMillan is questionable to play this week against Utah. When asked if they had thought about shutting down McMillan, DeBoer said, “As of right now, I don’t think that’s what is is.”

This season McMillan has only played in 5 games. He left the Michigan State game early with a lower-body injury, and tried to play again against Oregon and Stanford but was forced out early for those games as well. This season McMillan has 20 receptions for 311 yards and 3 touchdowns.

DeBoer also said that Washington safety Asa Turner will not play this week.

Turner has played in only 4 games this season, starting 3 of them. The senior safety has 18 total tackles this season, 11 being solo tackles. Turner has also added 2 tackles for loss for the Huskies defense.

Washington’s defense has struggled the last few weeks, giving up 42 points to USC and 33 points to Stanford. However, the offense has stayed in rhythm despite being without McMillan. Against USC, Rome Odunze had 5 receptions for 82 yards, and Ja’Lynn Polk added another 5 receptions for 52 yards and a touchdown.

Washington hosts No. 18 Utah this Saturday at 12:30 p.m. PT on FOX.
