Washington preseason All-American tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins has not been cleared to play in the Huskies’ season opener against No. 19 Boise State on Saturday, UW coach Steve Sarkisian said Monday.

Seferian-Jenkins had surgery on Aug. 15 for a broken bone in his right pinkie. The 6-foot-6, 276-pound junior is listed as the starting tight end on the depth chart UW released Monday.

“He’s not cleared to play at all,” Sarkisian said. “This (depth chart), if you read it properly, is a post-training camp depth chart. He was limited in this morning’s practice, so he’s not been cleared physically as of yet at all.”

Sarkisian declined to answer when asked about any potential discipline for Seferian-Jenkins’ after the tight end pleaded guilty to drunken driving in July. Sarkisian has said previously that the discipline was being handled “internally.”
