Washington State coach Paul Wulff said that quarterback Kevin Lopina should be able to play Saturday in the Apple Cup against Washington.

Wulff said Lopina only suffered a "mild concussion" over the weekend when he was knocked out of the loss at Arizona State.

"We feel like he is going to be cleared to go in practice today, so we feel like that will be a go," Wulff said.

Lopina's backup is true freshman J.T. Levenseller, who began the season expecting to redshirt. In limited playing time, he's completed 11 of 23 passes with two interceptions.

The Cougars have previously lost two other quarterbacks on the depth chart for the season due to injuries, Gary Rogers and Marshall Lobbestael. Lopina himself missed three games with a back injury.
