Wednesday practice update

The Huskies are off the field following the ninth practice of the spring.

It was full pads and featured some live tackling sessions. As always in these things, the best news for UW is that there weren’t any new injuries. In fact, a couple of guys wearing red of late — CB Greg Ducre and FB Cooper Pelluer — were out of red.

Maybe most interesting were a couple of vets trying out some new positions —- Erik Kohler took quite a few snaps at center with the No. 2 offense while also working some at left guard with the No. 1 unit (where Dexter Charles has usually been through the spring); and Nate Fellner spent the day working with the linebackers, including meeting with the linebackers when they separated into position groups (I’ll have quotes from Steve Sarkisian about those moves up shortly). Fellner worked primarily at the OLB spot where Taz Stevenson has been throughout the spring.

In a couple of noteworthy plays, Keith Price hit James Johnson for about a 45-yard TD during a team period for what was about the best offensive play of the day; defensively, there was one turnover I saw during the team period when Garret Gilliland tipped a Derrick Brown pass into the hands of Ken Egu.

Talia Crichton remained out with a knee injury meaning Jarret Finau again worked with the ones at defensive end. Dezden Petty also is back to full go and appeared to get a lot of work at tailback following Jesse Callier/Bishop Sankey. I didn’t notice anything else really out of the ordinary with the lineups, noting as always that there is a lot of mixing and matching of personnel this time of year.

Here’s a little bit of video of what it looked like at today’s practice:
