First, a few notes from the 20-minute window of opening stretching inside Husky Stadium this morning:
— LB John Timu (shoulder) was in full pads and leading warmups for the linebackers. He was not wearing the shoulder/arm sleeve he had on pre-game Saturday. Still unclear if he’s 100 percent, but those are positive signs.
— RB Bishop Sankey (bruised shoulder) was in full pads and appeared fine, as he insisted Monday.
— DT Connor Cree was in a yellow (no-contact) jersey.
— WR DiAndre Campbell came off the edge and blocked a Zach Grossnickle punt.
