Huskies close practices entirely

Washington announced Wednesday afternoon that Husky practices will be closed entirely for the rest of the season — the same policy most Pac-12 schools already have.

Previously, the first 20 minutes of Monday’s practice had been open to the media, with the rest of the week’s practices closed completely.

The move comes after I reported that standout cornerback Marcus Peters had missed practice on Monday and had been suspended for an outburst on the sideline during the Eastern Washington game. The Seattle Times ran that story after sources confirmed to me that Peters had been suspended.

UW had requested last month that “nothing observed during that (Monday) period may be reported.” That’s an awkward request to make of reporters, but it’s a request I respected — until this Monday. I was the only reporter who attended the open portion of Monday morning’s practice. It soon became apparent that standout cornerback Marcus Peters wasn’t there, which led me to contact sources and obtain independent confirmation. Still, Peters’ absence from practice was the foundation to the reporting, and it was important to include that piece in the story.
