Well, goes without saying not the kind of news UW wanted out of this weekend.
That obvious point stated, UW’s work for the spring will continue this week as the Huskies will hit the practice field again Tuesday and Thursday nights and then again on Saturday morning to continue spring workouts. Those practices will be the fourth, fifth and sixth of the spring for UW and after Saturday, the Huskies will then take two weeks off for finals and spring break before turning to workouts on April 2 after the beginning of the spring quarter.
It will be a busy week as UW as the school will host its annual Pro Day — when NFL scouts show up to test players who no longer have eligibility on speed, strength and various other attributes — Wednesday morning. UW has only one player who is generally expected to get drafted in cornerback Desmond Trufant, who many now think could get into the first round. ESPN draft guru Mel Kiper Jr. unveiled his latest mock draft today and has Trufant going to Denver in the first round at No., 28 overall. Trufant is expected to attend Pro Day but may not take part in every drill as he has already been tested at the Senior Bowl and the NFL Combine.
We’ll have full coverage of practices and Pro Day as they happen.
