Huskies off the field

I’ll post a quick entry to note that UW is off the field following its final open practice of camp.
Today pretty much marks the end of camp. The Huskies will have a closed practice this afternoon that simulates a normal Friday walk-through. Then it will have a mock game tomorrow that is also closed to the public (and media). The team will spend tonight in a hotel to completely simulate the feel of a gameday.
UW then gets into regular game-week mode on Saturday with a practice that is open to media and Tyee members and other select groups.
As for this morning’s practice, it was about a two-hour workout in helmets and shoulder pads only.
There were no new injuries, and the injury report was encouraging on one front as Senio Kelemete got a lot of work at left tackle. UW coach Steve Sarkisian said it was good to see Kelemete (who has been struggling with a high ankle sprain) able to move around in space.
That had the No. 1 OL looking like this from left to right — Kelemete, Ryan Tolar, Drew Schaefer, Greg Christine and Cody Habben. The No. 2 OL was, left to right — Erik Kohler, Nick Wood, Mykenna Ikehara, Colin Porter and Daniel Kanczugowski.
Cort Dennison sat out much of practice with a sprained knee. But Sarkisian said he isn’t worried that Dennison will miss the BYU game, instead simply playing it cautious right now. Dennison was in uniform and did participate in some drills. Still, that had true frosh Garret Gilliland working much of practice as the No. 1 MLB.
Sarkisian said the main injury concern is WR James Johnson, who again did not participate while struggling to recover from a sprained ankle. Cody Bruns appears to have emerged as the No. 4 WR with Johnson out, behind Jermaine Kearse, Devin Aguilar and D’Andre Goodwin. When the team went to four-receiver sets, those were the four guys out there.
Otherwise, no surprises in the lineup.
I’ll have some more notes and quotes later.
