And on the seventh day, the Huskies rested.
Well, sort of. I’m sure there are all sorts of meetings and all that. But officially, they are off today in terms of doing any on-field work — we won’t have a chance to see them again until Monday night, so it’ll be a while before there’s any new news on the Huskies.
For now, a bunch of links. …
UW AND HUSKY ALUM NEWS. …
— Here’s my story for the Sunday paper leading off with what Deontae Cooper said about his plans to return in 2013.
— Here’s the report from GoHuskies.com.
— Jake Locker played three series and was 7-13 for 80 yards in his return to Seattle last night and Devin Aguilar had one catch for yards, an eventual 27-17 Seahawks win. Jermaine Kearse and Roy Lewis played but had no stats. You can find all of our coverage here. The National Football Post said Locker looked good. (EDIT — Fixed from original entry).
— A former Husky competing for a job with the Cleveland Browns is guard Stanley Daniels.
