ASU quarterback Threet should be 'good to go' against Wazzou

After suffering a concussion in the second quarter of Arizona State’s 50-17 loss to Cal, quarterback Steven Threet should be ready to play this Saturday against Washington State.

The Meeechigan transfer passed all initial tests by team medical staff and returned to practice today.

To assist in the recovery, though, coach Dennis Erickson is simplifying ASU’s no-huddle offense. Can’t have Threet thinkin’ too much, now.

“I’ve mentioned it 100 times that we put a lot of pressure on our quarterbacks seeing everything out there all the time,” Erickson said. “We got to look at what we’re doing offensively. Not that we would change our offense, but let’s look at maybe not putting the pressure on (Threet) every down . . . maybe to where he doesn’t have to make a decision every play.”

Erickson went on to mention that Threet, slightly concussed or not, gives the Sundevils the best chance to win. Backup Brock Osweiler has been battling back injuries for the past couple of weeks.
