Practice notes

Not a ton of stuff to report from practice, other than a ton of Gold Jerseys in sight.
UW coaches award Gold Jerseys for stellar efforts in games and practices, and there are seven of them this week, about the most I’ve ever seen since Tyrone Willingham took over.
The Gold Jersey winners were: QB Jake Locker (meaning he could truly be called the Golden Boy), RB Louis Rankin, kicker Jared Ballman and defensive linemen Greyson Gunheim, Daniel Te’o-Nesheim, Jordan Reffett and Caesar Rayford.
The presence of so many DLs in gold indicates that the coaches thought the DL played as well as it appeared on Friday night.
FB Luke Kravitz was the only player wearing a red jersey but he was in uniform and running through plays during the early warmups. He had a pretty big cast on his hand, however.
TE Johnie Kirton appeared to have his right ankle heavily taped but I don’t know if that means anything — he’s had that before. But he appeared to be moving pretty slowly.
CB Byron Davenport and RB J.R. Hasty each appeared to be moving all right, as was WR Cody Ellis.
Ben Ossai ran with the first team at left tackle when the offense ran through a few drills.
There was also one addition to the roster, kicker Zach Gerasin of Irvine, Calif. He’s a walk-on who was with the team in the spring but not during fall drills. However, the team is now allowed to expand its roster with the season having started and Gerasin is back. The Huskies are expected to add more walk-ons once school starts in a couple of weeks.
The team was not in full pads today, going in helmets, shoulder pads and shorts.
