SEATTLE (AP) Washington quarterback Jake Locker won't play on Saturday when the struggling Huskies face No. 1 Oregon.

Washington coach Steve Sarkisian said Monday that Locker had been playing with a hairline rib fracture that became a full break when Locker took a hit in the Huskies' 41-0 loss to No. 10 Stanford on Saturday.

Sarkisian says Locker's rib problems started with a cartilage injury suffered against Oregon State on Oct. 16 and progressively got worse. He was cleared by doctors to play against Stanford even with the hairline fracture.

Locker was just 7 of 14 passing for 64 yards and two interceptions against the Cardinal. He was sacked three times.

With Locker out, redshirt freshman Keith Price will make his first start on Saturday.
