The latest news and analysis on the Montlake Dawgs.

Thursday P.M. notes

Sounds like a pretty clean practice for the Huskies Thursday as Tyrone Willingham met with us and said there was little new on the injury front — which this time of year often tends to be the main topic of news.
CB Byron Davenport (hamstring) is still out, but the good news was that WR Anthony Russo is progressing quickly, as detailed in the earlier post.
“He’s doing well,” Willingham said. “He’s moving pretty quick.”
PK Erik Folk is beginning to do more, but Willingham said the kicking jobs are still up in the air. If the team played a game today, he said Jared Ballman would probably do the kicking. But Willingham said he’d like not to have one player handle both kicking and punting (Ballman is also in the race to be the punter).
“I like to have two different guys,” he said. “The leg actions are different and sometimes it’s difficult to change.”
Willingham said that’s a job that could go down to the last minute, even to gameday. Teams are allowed to take more players to non-conference games, and the Huskies could take multiple kickers and decide once there.
Willingham also said that true freshman RB Curtis Shaw missed some of practice due to an injury, though he said he couldn’t detail what the injury was.
I also asked Willingham about Chris Izbicki since that was a question posed here earlier. He said Izbicki is like a lot of the other freshmen in suffering “information overload” and having their game slow down considerably while learning the playbook. But he also said there’s plenty of opportunity at tight end. “We’re still looking for that dominant tight end,” he said.
PRACTICE OPEN SATURDAY — Another reminder that Saturday’s 2:30 p.m. practice is open to all.
