Tuesday practice report — Elisara, Savannah out, Mosley not at practice

The Huskies have concluded a cold and wet practice today, one that also made it clear that winter is approaching as it was dark by 5 p.m., putting the team under the lights for most of the workout.
In personnel news, DT Cameron Elisara (stinger) again did not practice and is likely out for the Oregon State game. That means more trying to put pieces together up front though the good news is that Everrette Thompson, who didn’t play last week while sick, is back and should be ready to go.
Also out this is LB E.J. Savannah, who also did not practice today. Defensive coordinator Nick Holt said he would not be ready to play against the Beavers, so that means Cort Dennison will get another start.
FS Jason Wells again sat out resting the foot he injured Saturday, an injury unrelated to his earlier Achilles injury, but coaches said they hoped he will be able to return. Nate Fellner took all the reps with the starters at free safety with Wells out.
Other than that, the lineups appeared unchanged, with Ben Ossai and Drew Schaefer continuing to rotate at left tackle. The OL was bolstered by the return of Mykenna Ikehara, who missed last week with a knee injury, was back again working at guard.
Also, the Huskies may have suffered a defection today as junior cornerback Matt Mosley was not at practice.
He had a meeting with UW coach Steve Sarkisian earlier in the day and did not participate in practice today. Sarkisian does not meet with the media after Tuesday’s practice but it was confirmed that Mosley was not there after meeting earlier with Sarkisian.
Mosley, a junior cornerback, started six games for the Huskies in 2007 and 2008 but has not played this season as the coaches turned to other options.
Holt said last week that Mosley had had some “off-field issues” — apparently not legal or serious — that had led to him not playing, but that he also had not performed when given chances in practice.
Mosley, Corona Del Sol High in Chandler, Ariz., was also one of the team’s kickoff returners in 2008 with a long of 63 against Arizona State. He was a member of the class of 2006
Mosley had slid further down the depth chart in the bye week when receiver Anthony Boyles switched sides and moved ahead of him.
We had our usual meeting with Holt today and I’ll pass on some of that later.
