Early Thursday practice report — Joe Montana in sight, but not Clarence Trent

As practice began in the Demsey Indoor Thursday, there was no sight of Clarence Trent, clear evidence that his days as a football player are officially over.
However, plainly visible was NFL legend Joe Montana and his wife, Jennifer, the first time this year they have been at a UW practice to watch their son, Nick, a true freshman QB for the Huskies. (I tried to take a picture, with the dim lighting in the Indoor, I couldn’t get anything good. But here’s a link to a recent picture of them — this is pretty much what they looked like today.
Montana, as might be expected, tended to walk to where the QBs were so he could keep a close eye on Nick. If you’re wondering, it would be an NCAA violation to have any contact during a practice, so he had to stand behind the rope just like any other fan.
As for Trent being gone, it confirms what Nick Holt told the Times earlier in the day that Trent had told UW coach Steve Sarkisian on Wednesday that he “might not be into doing it (playing football) anymore.”
The Huskies hoped Trent might fill help fill the void at defensive end.
Instead, UW seems to be going full steam ahead with plans to move Cameron Elisara there. He spent the entire 11-on-11 session in the early part of practice at defensive end, with Tyrone Duncan and Semisi Tokolahi at tackle.
In other news:
De’Shon Matthews was not in pads as he rests an Achilles injury, which doesn’t help the DE depth.
— Also again out were WRs Cody Bruns (concussion) and Jordan Polk (hamstring).
— There didn’t appear to be any other lineup changes aside from Elisara.
— WR D’Andre Goodwin was in pads but sitting out a lot of the early work, apparently still bothered with a hamstring injury.
— There was some early work on the return game and the six I saw taking kicks were Chris Polk, James Johnson, Jesse Callier, Deontae Cooper, Devin Aguilar and Johri Fogerson. Chris Polk is in full pads but wearing red. (I had some incorrect information in an item in here earlier so I’ve since removed it).
