One tidbit from the open portion of UW practice this morning: Starting left guard Dexter Charles, questionable for Saturday’s game at Arizona State with a shoulder injury, took part in warmups, though he didn’t do all the drills. And, for what it’s worth, he was not wearing a yellow, no-contact jersey.

My midseason report card of the Huskies. Here are position-by-position grades (with explanations in the story):

Quarterbacks: B-plus
Running backs: A-minus
Offensive line: B-minus
Receivers: B

Defensive line: B-minus
Linebackers: B
Secondary: B-plus
Special teams: C-minus

Feel free to offer your own grades. I’ve heard a few complaints about the A-minus for Bishop Sankey, but that’s more on the running backs as a whole. A minor criticism, really, with the idea that Jesse Callier (and Dwayne Washington and Deontae Cooper) needs to spell Sankey more in the second half of the season.
