Two Washington football players who had been kicked off the team the day before were reinstated on Friday, UW coach Steve Sarkisian announced after the team’s evening practice.
The two players — redshirt freshman H-back Joshua Perkins of Gahr High in Cerritos, Calif., and walk-on tailback Willis Wilson of Lakes High in Lakewood — had been dismissed the day before, UW announcing in a press release that the reason was an unspecified “violation of team rules.”
Perkins, who came to UW as a receiver, was moved to an H-back/tight end role before training camp and was expected to add depth at that spot this season. Wilson, in his third year in the program, has yet to see action in a game but had been impressive early in camp and counted on for depth at a tailback spot that took a hit when Deontae Cooper suffered a season-ending knee injury earlier this month.
More on UW’s practice tonight a little later.
