The hits keep coming for a depleted Washington offensive line that was already missing three experienced players. Colin Tanigawa is presumed to have suffered a knee injury in the Huskies' 41-3 to LSU, according to the Seattle Times.

The redshirt sophomore guard also missed the last two games of 2011 with a knee injury. He has made 13 starts in his career.

This Huskies team is also missing junior tackle Erik Kohler, who suffered a knee injury against LSU. That came on the heels of Ben Riva, the other starting tackle, breaking his forearm in Week 1 against San Diego State.

Washington lost projected starting guard Colin Porter in the spring, when he decided to end his football career due to chronic shoulder injuries.

With an important Pac-12 North battle coming up against Stanford on Thursday, the Huskies will now be down to one offensive lineman, Drew Schaefer, who returns as a starter from 2011.
