Quick practice report and Sarkisian video

As I mentioned earlier, it was a busy morning out here with practice, and then a roughly 90-minute update on the renovation of Husky Stadium that included a tour.

I’ll have some video of the tour a little later.

First, a few notes from practice. …

— The one new injury is a broken right hand suffered by backup OL Siosifa Tufunga. That leaves UW with eight healthy offensive linemen, six on scholarship, and obviously could greatly impact the ability of the Huskies to hold much of a Spring Game Saturday. UW coach Steve Sarkisian said he’s not sure what the Huskies will do, saying it could just be an offense vs. defense deal.

Drew Schaefer was back in full pads but did not do any team session stuff. Hard to tell if he’d be ready to go for Saturday, though in the long term it’s obviously good news that he’s already back to putting on full pads.

— Receiver James Johnson remained out and Lawrence Lagafuiana was in red. Also back in pads, but in red, was FB Cooper Pelluer. The good news there is that his shoulder injury of last week must not be that serious for him to be back in pads. Also back to full action is linebacker Scott Lawyer. Also back to full action again is Talia Crichton (he was Saturday, as well).

— No real changes to the lineups from what I saw. The team was in full pads and did some brief full-contact short-yardage work but nothing approximating a scrimmage.

— Talked to Austin Seferian-Jenkins for a while after practice today. He stayed afterward to do some extra work, saying he took it hard the couple plays that didn’t go his way in Saturday’s scrimmage. Also doing extra work afterward were Keith Price and Kasen Williams.

Here’s some video of Sarkisian’s post-practice session with the media:
