Saturday update

Today was Washington’s first day in full pads, a practice that started at 9 a.m., followed by Picture Day at 1 p.m.
Coach Tyrone Willingham said the practice was “about what I expected” in that there was a lot of energy, but also some sloppiness, which is typical this time of year. The Huskies brought in officials for the scrimmage work of practice, which always tends to highlight any sloppiness.
Dan Howell wore the Gold Jersey for the fourth straight day, though this day it was for his work on special teams. Tight end Michael Gottlieb won it for offense.
There was no winner for defensive play on Friday. Willingham said that didn’t mean it was a bad day for the defense, simply that no player stood out above the rest.
Howell is on almost all the special teams units.
Willingham said there were no significant injuries though DE Darrion Jones and LB Scott White each received “bumps on the head.” We’ll resist making any jokes about how White might have received that bump. WR Quintin Daniels also appeared to have suffered some sort of hand injury as his hand was heavily wrapped after practice. And redshirt freshman TE Tim Williams is sidelined at the moment as he recovers from offseason shoulder surgery.
The team’s new home uniforms were debuted at Picture Day and in what will probably disappoint those who wanted a return to the look of the team’s glory days, there didn’t appear to be much of a difference from last year’s uniforms. In fact, most people probably won’t be able to see much of a difference.
The real difference is in the fabric of the uniforms which will apparently allow for a little more flexibility and allow the uniforms themselves to breathe a little better.
