UW’s Austin Seferian-Jenkins to have surgery on broken pinkie, will be out ‘quite awhile’

Washington standout tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins has a “small fracture” in his right pinkie finger and will need surgery, UW coach Steve Sarkisian said after Tuesday’s scrimmage.

“Austin’s going to be out for quite awhile,” Sarkisian said. “He actually has a small fracture in his pinkie there that’s going to require surgery, so he’s going to be out for an amount of time. He came out with a good attitude. He’s doing all the conditioning work and the fundamental stuff from a footwork standpoint, but he won’t be catching balls here for a little while.”

Asked if that meant missing “weeks or months,” Sarkisian said, “I don’t know, quite honestly. I’m hopeful it’s days, but I really don’t know. … I’ll know more at the end of the week.”

Seferian-Jenkins, a preseason All-American, holds virtually every career record for a UW tight end, with 13 touchdowns, 110 catches and 1,288 receiving yards in his first two seasons with the Huskies.
