USF CB Washington shut down for week

Senior cornerback Quenton Washington has been shut down for the week and won’t play Saturday against UTEP in order to give his injured knee time to heal, USF defensive backs coach Rick Smith said Tuesday.
Smith said Washington originally suffered a knee sprain during fall camp in Vero Beach and that the injury has lingered since. After consulting with head trainer Steve Walz, Smith said the decision was made to keep Washington out of practice and off the field against UTEP in the hope it will allow him to get closer to full strength in time for the Bulls’ Big East Conference opener at Pittsburgh on Sept. 29.
With Washington out, Smith said he’ll likely give junior George Baker the start against the Miners, though sophomore JaQuez Jenkins also remains an option.
On Sunday, Smith praised Baker’s play in wins over Ball State and Florida A&M, saying the reserve corner had graded out a winner in each game. Jenkins has missed the past two games with a hamstring injury but returned to practice Tuesday.
