Gaskin appeared to re-aggravate his shoulder, while Ahmed hyperextended his knee against Oregon. Senior cornerback Jordan Miller is also week to week, Petersen said.
The status of Washington’s top two running backs remains up in the air this week.
Senior Myles Gaskin and sophomore Salvon Ahmed, both dinged in the Huskies’ overtime loss at Oregon on Saturday, are “week to week,” coach Chris Petersen said Monday.
Gaskin injured his shoulder in the Huskies’ Oct. 6 victory at UCLA and aggravated the injury in the first half against Oregon. He did return to the field, getting four carries in the second half, but was in visible discomfort coming off the field after his last carry.
Gaskin has never missed a game in his record-breaking career at UW.

Ahmed hyperextended his right knee in the third quarter. After being checked by trainers on the sideline, he also returned to the field, but was only used as a decoy on two snaps late in the game.
Senior cornerback Jordan Miller also is week to week heading into the home game Saturday against Colorado (12:30 p.m., Fox), Petersen said. Miller sat out the second half of the Oregon game after sustaining a leg injury in the first half.
Pounds out for the year
The Huskies will be without one of their big-play receivers for the remainder of the season.
Junior Quinten Pounds has suffered a third major knee injury in his UW career, and he will miss the rest of the 2018 season, Petersen said.
Pounds missed most of his freshman season in 2015 with a torn ACL in his right knee. Late in the 2017 season, he tore the ACL in his left knee.
Pounds had eight catches for 166 yards and one touchdown catch — a spectacular one-handed grab in the season opener against Auburn.
Colorado star WR injured
Colorado has injury issues of its own, notably with Heisman Trophy candidate Laviska Shenault.
Shenault, the No. 1 receiver in the country, was sidelined by a toe injury in the fourth quarter of Colorado’s 31-20 loss at USC late Saturday.
His status for the game Saturday at Husky Stadium is unclear.
