Washington State redshirt freshman quarterback Connor Halliday was released from Pullman Regional Hospital Tuesday, but he will not be making the trip to Seattle for the Apple Cup against Washington on Saturday.
Halliday suffered a lacerated liver in the Cougars' 30-27 overtime loss to Utah over the weekend but nonetheless finished the game.
Senior Marshall Lobbestael will get the start for the Cougars in CenturyLink Field, the Seattle Seahawks' home stadium. The Cougars already have lost starter Jeff Tuel (shoulder) for the season. Redshirt sophomore David Gilbertson, son of former Washington coach Keith Gilbertson, will be the backup.
Halliday set a Pac-12 freshman record with 494 yards passing and four touchdowns in an upset win over Arizona State, and he nearly led a comeback victory against Utah.
