Huskies on the field for Saturday morning practice

Just checked in on the beginning of UW’s practice this morning at Husky Stadium and back in the press room to pass along a few notes and links. After it just poured here all day Friday, it was clear and not all that bad as practice began today …

— The team is in half-pads, or helmets, shoulders pads and shorts/sweats. Full pads will not go on until Tuesday.

Mykenna Ikehara, the lineman who is not returning to play this year due to knee injuries, is a visible presence helping out, similar to what Alvin Logan did a year ago after he also retired due to knee issues. Ikehara is remaining in school on a medical scholarship.

— The offensive line appeared the same today, with their really being no reason to have changed anything much yet. The starting OL, from left to right, appears this way: Senio Kelemete, Colin Tanigawa, Drew Schaefer, Colin Porter and Erik Kohler, with Ben Riva rotating in at tackle. The No. 2 line looks this way, left to right: Micah Hatchie, Mike Criste, Daniel Kanczugowski, James Atoe and Skyler Fancher. That obviously is all seven of the signees of last year working in the two-deep, and three with the starting unit (plus Riva rotating in with Kelemete limited).

Jonathan Amosa, who earned a scholarship last year as a walk-on linebacker, has been moved to fullback as the Huskies explore options at that position with Austin Sylvester graduating.

— Here’s a report on Jake Locker meeting with the Broncos on Friday, a group that included John Elway.

— ESPN.com’s Mike Sando with a good piece further exploring former UW QB Warren Moon’s feelings on the criticism levied at Cam Newton.

— CoachSark’s site has a photo of what it looks like here this morning.

We’ll have a few more notes and quotes after practice.
