Another blow for Washington State.

Receiver Jeshua Anderson has quit football in order to concentrate on track full-time.

Anderson, who caught four passes for 66 yards in the first two games, is the two-time NCAA 400-meter hurdles champion. The 6-foot-2, 192-pound junior struggled with a hamstring injury early in the season. He was listed as the Cougars No. 2 X receiver behind Daniel Blackledge on this week's depth chart.

In 2008, he had 33 receptions for 305 yards and two touchdowns, starting the final 11 games.
