Junior forward Jernard Jarreau, who suffered a season-ending knee injury in the opener last year, still hasn’t been cleared to practice fully. He said the Washington medical staff is being cautious with his rehab.

Meanwhile coach Lorenzo Romar anticipates Jarreau will be able to practice without restrictions next week.

Romar also believes Jarreau will be a little rusty and expects his timing to be off after sitting out a year. Still, the Huskies are banking on the 6-10, 245-pound forward reaching his potential. If Jarreau is everything he’s billed to be, then he gives Washington another long, shot-blocker to anchor the defense alongside 6-11 center Robert Upshaw.

Jarreau also could potentially become the trigger man in the high-post offense because he has good passing skills for a big man and in the past has shown he’s able to knock down a mid-range jumper with good consistency.
