It was a good news/bad news day for Washington when coaches Kalen DeBoer, William Inge, and Ryan Grubb met with reporters Monday morning.

We’ll start with the bad news first: fifth-year junior corner Julius Irvin is done for the season because of an unspecified injury. He hasn’t played since the UCLA game. DeBoer confirmed the news.

The 6-foot-1, 179-pound California native began the season as a backup safety but moved to cornerback midway through the season-opener against Kent State when starting corner Jordan Perryman was forced out of the game. He started the next four games at corner as UW worked through injury issues in the secondary.

Irvin looked promising in UW’s win over Michigan State earlier this season, where he had two tackles, an interception and a key pass break-up late in the game.

Perryman and Mishael Powell have both returned for UW and sit atop the two-deep for the new week. Davon Banks and Jaivion Green are listed as backups at corner.

On the positive front for the Huskies, linebacker Edefuan Ulofoshio could possibly start this week against Oregon, Inge said. DeBoer added that Ulofoshio was on a pitch count after missing the first eight games of the season.

“Continues to get his feet underneath him, getting some game experience and getting some of the rust kicked off,” DeBoer said. “He’s kept such a positive attitude through all of this from the beginning. So happy to see him out on the football field and can’t wait… I know he wants to make an even bigger impact this weekend.”

The 6-foot-1, 235-pound linebacker played seven snaps in Friday’s 24-21 win over Oregon State. Inge said he wanted to and “probably could have” played more, but the staff didn’t want to “burn him up” his first game back. Inge said it was like Week 1 for him after missing the final six games of the 2021 season with an arm injury and then all of the spring, summer, and fall with a knee injury suffered during winter workouts.

Edge rusher Zion Tupuola-Fetui is also expected to be full-go after twice leaving the game against the Beavers.

The Huskies face Oregon in Autzen Stadium Saturday at 4 p.m. PT on FOX.
