Whenever you are breaking in a new quarterback it is always nice to have a star running back to lean on. The Washington Huskies have Chris Polk who has rushed for 1,000 yards in back-to-back seasons. Recently though they may have found a speedy complement to Polk's bruising style. Deontae Cooper is coming back from a season ending injury and has Steve Sarkisian saying "I see the suddenness, the cutting on both legs".
Cooper will most likely see the field as a third-down back because of his receiving ability but he won't siphon much from Polk.
