Video: Sarkisian talks about Tuesday practice

The Huskies are off the field following their Tuesday practice, which included the most substantive scrimmage of the season.

No new injuries, always the best news for the coaches.

Also, UW coach Steve Sarkisian said that Quinton Richardson has been diagnosed with a high ankle sprain and could miss the opener against Eastern but shouldn’t be out too long — weeks rather than months, as he said Monday night, as well.

And DT Alameda Ta’amu returned to play the first two series with his hand in a case.

Kasen Williams worked with the starting offense, alongside Jermaine Kearse and Kevin Smith, with Devin Aguilar going with the second unit, in what appeared to be the only real significant personnel move. And no new word yet on the three ineligible players. Sarkisian said it should come any day but hasn’t come yet.

There were five touchdowns in the scrimmage:

— A 1-yard run by Chris Polk, who had nine carries for 36 yards and then sat the rest of the day;
— A 2-yard pass from Nick Montana to Travon Brooks, capping a good series for the second offense;
— A 25-yard fumble return by Jamaal Kearse on a bad center snap;
— A 13-yard run by Dezden Petty;
— And a 2-yard run by Jesse Callier.

And what might have been the best play of the day didn’t officially count as Williams leaped high over Travis Feeney for a 10-yard TD in the back of the end zone. Coaches, however, blew the play dead on a touch sack right before Montana threw the ball.

I’ll have more stats and notes and quotes later.

Here’s some video of Sarkisian’s post-scrimmage meeting with the media:
