UW freshman defensive tackle Jaimie Bryant has taken a medical retirement from football, coach Chris Petersen said Thursday.

Bryant, a Tumwater High product who grayshirted last season, signed with the Huskies as part of Petersen’s first recruiting class in February. He enrolled in classes in April and took part in the final two weeks of spring practices.

Petersen said Bryant began to feel some numbness in his hamstring late in the spring. That led to an MRI, which revealed a back injury. Doctors then recommended that Bryant retire.

“Just crushing,” Petersen said. “It breaks your heart.”

Bryant will remain on scholarship and Petersen said he hopes find a role for him in the video department or something similar.

The good news on the injury front is that Petersen expects senior receiver Kasen Williams, senior left tackle Micah Hatchie and junior left guard Dexter Charles to be back to full strength, or close to it, by the start of fall camp on Aug. 4.

“Everybody’s coming along great,” Petersen said.

Williams has been “running full speed. He’s out there working with the guys,” Petersen said. “In another week, I’m anxious to see when we start that he’s full go and looks great.”
