STANFORD — Stanford quarterback Kevin Hogan is nursing a leg injury but is expected to start against Washington State on Friday night.

Cardinal coach David Shaw said Tuesday that Hogan was injured during Stanford's 17-14 loss at Notre Dame on Saturday. He declined to discuss how the injury occurred or which leg was hurt.

Shaw said Hogan did not practice Monday, would be limited in Tuesday's practice and will likely participate without limitations in Wednesday's final practice before the game. Backup Evan Crower has been taking snaps with the first-team offense and would start if Hogan has a setback.

Stanford center Graham Shuler gave an optimistic outlook on Hogan's status. Shuler said Hogan injured his leg in the beginning of the game at Notre Dame but is fine now.

“I was jogging into the facility with him this morning. He's ready to roll,” Shuler said.

Hogan has started every game for No. 25 Stanford (3-2, 1-1 Pac-12) since taking over for Josh Nunes in November 2012. He has led the Cardinal to the past two Pac-12 titles.
