Thursday practice notes and Sarkisian video

The Huskies are off the field following their Thursday practice and now on their way to Lincoln.

After the workout, UW coach Steve Sarkisian said that safety Nate Fellner will not be able to play — he wil be replaced in the lineup by Justin Glenn, who hasn’t started since getting hurt against Notre Dame in 2009.

He also said Taz Stevenson, who tweaked his knee in practice on Wednesday is “doubtful. … he was really sore today. Not as bad as we initially thought but I’d bet he’s doubtful.”

Defensive end Talia Crichton is also, in Sarkisian’s words, “a little banged up.” But Sarkisian noted that the Huskies are likely to use Everrette Thompson a lot more at end this week, anyway, pairing him with Hau’oli Jamora.

“We are doing something up front where we are trying to get Everrette on the outside to give us a little more length,” Sarkisian said.

That will mean more time inside for guys like Sione Potoa’e, Lawrence Lagafuiana, Danny Shelton and Semisi Tokolahi, of whom Sarkisian said today “is going to play on Saturday.”

The Huskies can take 76 players so there are no real decisions to make in terms of leaving guys behind. Both punters will make the trip, for instance.

Sarkisian also praised the work of Cody Bruns as a scout team quarterback this week, noting that he did a good impression of Taylor Martinez throughout.

“He did a great job,” Sarkisian said. “He is a very multi-versed guy and so for him to be able to play quarterback and really run the way he can run as well as throw gave them (the defense) a great look.” Bruns was a quarterback briefly at Prosser High.

Here’s video of Sarkisian’s meeting with the media today:
