Thursday notes

Here are a few notes from UW coach Tyrone Willingham’s session with the media this afternoon:
— OT Chad Macklin, who we noted didn’t take part in what we saw of Wednesday’s practice, was sitting out with a slight knee injury suffered when he banged knees with another player, Willingham said. It doesn’t sound serious.
— Willingham said Casey Bulyca is making a push to reclaim a starting guard spot, which jibes with what we saw on Wednesday. Matt Sedillo was not in the two-deeps Wednesday because he is nursing “a little injury,” Willingham said. He said Sedillo is still right in the mix for a spot in the rotation.
— DT Wilson Afoa remains out with a shoulder injury but could be back soon.
— Willingham confirmed that true freshman LB Mason Foster is making a run at playing time this season. Foster ran with the No. 1 dime defense during practice Wednesday, apparently taking the place of Donald Butler, who remains in-and-out of the lineup with a knee injury. Willingham said he didn’t want to call Foster’s play “surprising” but that “his play has been very promising” both in his knowledge and execution of the system.
— Willingham said Saturday’s open practice will include some scrimmaging.
— Willingham also said that walk-on DB Jared Fagan of Eastlake has left the team. That’s two defections so far, both walk-ons. It’s unlikely anyone will be added until school starts.
BTW — Here’s the official roster for Central Washington University, released today, showing a few ex-Huskies, including Chris Hemphill, Durrell Moss, Charles Smith, Jared Bronson and Chris Rohrbach.
