SEATTLE (AP) - A University of Washington spokesman says starting Huskies quarterback Jake Locker will have his right hand examined by a hand specialist today. Locker, a sophomore, suffered a broken right thumb in the second quarter of the Huskies' 35-28 loss to Stanford on Saturday night in Seattle. Offensive coordinator Tim Lappano says Locker could be out for six weeks, although he might be back in two weeks at another position. Redshirt freshman Ronnie Fouch took over after Locker was injured when he apparently threw a block in front of Jordan Polk on a reverse play that went 27 yards. Fouch completed 13 of 27 passes for 186 and one touchdown and also ran for one touchdown as the Huskies' record fell to 0-4. Washington has eight games left on its schedule, facing 2 and 2 Arizona in a Pac-10 game next Saturday at 4:30 p.m. in Tucson. The Huskies are 0-2 in Pac-10 play, while the Wildcats are 1-0.
