Suggs on the mend; Seferian-Jenkins on the fence

Washington will soon add another player to the rotation and we’re not talking about Husky freshman tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins who was taking jump shots with Andrew Andrews before today’s practice on the main court at Hec Ed and talking with coach Lorenzo Romar. More on ASJ later.
Senior guard Scott Suggs is hoping to return to practice next week after undergoing surgery Oct. 14 to repair a fractured little toe.
Suggs said he’s pain free, but doctors and trainers want him to practice for 3-4 days before making his season debut. Washington has been targeting next week’s New York trip for his return and it sounds as if he will be available for the Dec. 10 game against No. 3 Duke.
The UW medical staff took an X-ray of Suggs’ toe and according to the senior guard, “everything looked fine.”
Suggs is doing agility drills with trainers and working out on his own.
“I’m ready to come back whenever they let me come back,” he said. “If they let me come back against Nevada, I would like to come back against Nevada. If not, I would like to come back against New York. I don’t want it to be any later than that. I don’t want to miss New York that should be a good experience.”
Suggs, a 6 foot 6 guard who averaged 7.4 points last season, is certain to return soon. It remains a mystery if Seferian-Jenkins will every play for the Huskies.
The 6-6, 258-pound freshman talked to Romar during the recruiting process about playing basketball at UW, but Romar said the subject hasn’t been discussed recently and intimated that it’s a football decision.
Romar noted several football players in the past have expressed a desire to play both sports – including Devin Aguilar and former UW tight end Kavario Middleton – but they changed their minds.
