Adams, a preseason All-American, makes his season debut in the second quarter against Oregon State.
Talk about a big lift.
Washington’s 6-foot-8 left tackle, Trey Adams, suited up in his No. 72 purple jersey and made his season debut in the second quarter of the Huskies’ home finale against Oregon State on Saturday afternoon.
Adams hadn’t played in 13 months, since sustaining a torn ACL against Arizona State in October 2017.
A preseason All-American, Adams in August was on track to return from the knee injury for the start of this season until he suffered a back injury four days before the Huskies’ season opener against Auburn.
On Saturday, Adams went throughout regular warmups and lined up at left tackle with the No. 2 offensive line during the final team snaps. Junior Jared Hilbers again got the start at left tackle.
Beavers vs. Beavers
Coming off their bye week, there was more good news for the No. 17 Huskies on the injury front: Senior defensive lineman Shane Bowman, senior cornerback Jordan Miller and junior nickelback Myles Bryant were all in uniform and played in the first half Saturday.
Miller and Bryant both missed UW’s victory over Stanford with an undisclosed injury. Bowman had been out the past six games with a broken foot.
Also back: DJ Beavers.
Beavers, a junior linebacker, had not played since the Huskies’ season opener because of an undisclosed injury. Beavers started the opener against Auburn, and his absence had left UW extremely thin at inside linebacker.
