No one has been more eager or more energetic in the first two days of UW practices than outside linebacker Travis Feeney, who missed spring practices after having shoulder surgery.
By my count, Feeney has three interceptions in two days’ worth of passing drills. He skied to snag a Cyler Miles pass in the flat on Monday, and then made a sprawling pick in the middle of the field against Keith Price on Tuesday.
“That was a heckuva pick,” UW coach Steve Sarkisian said after practice Tuesday. “He’s just such an athletic guy. He’s so long, he can really run. He and Shaq (Thompson) playing outside ’backer for you are two pretty good guys when you’re facing all the (spread) teams we’re playing. Travis, it’s good to have him back. We didn’t have him all spring and he makes a difference for us, for sure.”
Feeney said he is “good to go” after the surgery, and is wearing a brace over his left shoulder.
