Quiet end to camp

As should be hoped by UW fans this time of year, there wasn’t much news arising from Washington’s practice today — mainly, no new injuries to report.
The team practiced in helmets, shoulder pads and shorts for what was their last official practice of fall camp.
The team will take Sunday off, the first day players have been completely away from football since camp began Aug. 8.
Coach Tyrone Willingham said he liked the attitude of the team right to the end.
“They got in, got it done and walked off the field ready to play San Jose State,” he said.
But Willingham reported no new personnel news of any sort.
As I’ll report in more detail in a story for Sunday’s paper, the Huskies appear to be about as healthy as could be hoped heading into the season. Willingham said Jason Wells, C.J. Wallace and Anthony Russo — all hurt in a memorable play Thursday — and DE Greyson Gunheim should all return to practice Tuesday. And he said earlier today, when asked about Dashon Goldson, that he “would be surprised if he didn’t play” against San Jose State.
Here are some other notes:
&#8226 Camp ended on a light note as Willingham picked eight non-kickers to attempt a field goal of about 25 yards. For every kick that was made, the team’s running was cut down. Six players made kicks, though one who didn’t was QB Isaiah Stanback.
&#8226 Gold jerseys were worn Saturday by DE Daniel Te’o-Nesheim for his work on defense and walk-on defensive lineman Fred Wiggs for his work on what Willingham calls the “service team” — something more generally known as the scout team.
&#8226 One person asked this week about Darin Harris. The junior safety is not currently on the roster while recovering from an injury but may return when the roster expands in a few weeks.
&#8226 Several of you have asked what’s taking so long with the academically ineligible players. Hard to know for sure without knowing the specifics of each case, and those are not given to us because of privacy issues. I know in several instances, parents, and the players themselves, have said things that led to a belief that something would happen soon. But I always caution that nothing is done until the school/NCAA says it is and to take comments made by players and parents with a slightly skeptical eye since it’s always hard to know what’s really going on. That said, it’s beginning to become a moot point as I doubt any of those players could make a huge impact anytime soon, though maybe Ashlee Palmer could contribute at some point if he returns quickly.
