Quarterback Cyler Miles runs, jumps with teammates at ‘Husky Combine’

Sophomore quarterback Cyler Miles, reinstated to the team last week after a three-month suspension, tested with the rest of his teammates during UW’s first “Husky Combine” this morning at Dempsey Indoor.

Miles had apologized to teammates for his involvement in the post-Super Bowl assault of Seahawks fans. He has been throwing to receivers and tight ends during informal workouts with fellow quarterbacks Jeff Lindquist and Troy Williams.

Miles was not available for interviews, nor was coach Chris Petersen.

“It’s like he just went on vacation and came back,” senior receiver DiAndre Campbell said of Miles’ return. “He apologized to us, so we’re just happy to have him back. … I feel he’s definitely more appreciative of the opportunity to be here and to practice with his brothers and to be out here battling with us and working with us. He’s definitely more humble and willing to work and gain that respect back.”

Miles hit 35.5 inches on the vertical jump. Lindquist peaked at 32 inches and Williams 31.5.

Petersen was among about six people standing at the 40-yard line to time the players’ 40-yard sprints. Another stopwatch specialist was former UW tight end Mark Bruener, now a scout for the Steelers. A second NFL scout was also in attendance, assisting with the timing.

Two notables absences today: Running back Deontae Cooper and defensive end Josh Shirley.

Receiver John Ross appeared to have the fastest time in the 40-yard dash. Here’s an updated post on Ross and other results.

Receiver Kendyl Taylor had the top vertical jump at 40.5 inches. That mark would would have been second among all receivers at the NFL combine this year — and tied for fifth among all participants.

Other times and marks are being posted on Twitter from UW strength and conditioning coach Tim Socha:
