The No. 4 Washington Huskies will host the Washington State Cougars for the Apple Cup at 4 p.m. ET and running back Dillon Johnson is considered questionable for the rivalry showdown. He had his foot stepped on during last week’s road victory over Oregon State and offensive coordinator Ryan Grubb revealed on Monday that he was in a walking boot. Grubb then said that he was hopeful that Johnson would be able to suit up for today’s season finale.

It would be a huge blow to the Huskies if Johnson was unable to play as he’s been one of their primary playmakers this season. Through 10 games, he has broken off 152 carries for 879 yards and 11 touchdowns. His marquee performance came against USC earlier this month, where he ran for 256 yards and four TD’s in the shootout victory. With Washington already clinching a spot in next week’s Pac-12 Championship Game, there’s a chance that the staff could rest him this afternoon.

Washington enters the game as a 15.5-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook, accompanied by a total of 66.
