Junior tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins underwent surgery on Thursday to repair a fracture on his small finger on his right hand. His projected return has not been set yet. The team will have a full pads practice on Friday and then a full, closed scrimmage on Saturday.
Michael Hartvigson had what Sarkisian called the No. 2 tight end's best practice of UW's 13 this month through intermittent rain at Husky Stadium. Sarkisian paired Hartvigson, a 6-foot-6, 257-pound junior with the size to pick up some edge-blocking slack in ASJ's absence, with converted wide receiver Joshua Perkins as UW stayed with its regular array of two-tight end sets.

Another mediocre day for the field-goal kickers. Washington could well end up having Travis Coons kick from about 38 yards in and Cameron Van Winkle kick anything deeper. Sarkisian said yesterday that he values consistency from kickers more than a true long distance guy. That way, he can strategize around the kicker's limitations. (Via: The News Tribune)
The Evan Hudson experiment at defensive end is still looking like a successful one as the converted tight end continues to take snaps with the No. 1 offense at defensive end. He even batted down a pass from Price, much to the delight of his defensive teammates. (Via: The Daily)

Still a lot of shuffling on the D-line, but true frosh Joe Mathis has been running a lot with the ones the past couple days.— Adam Jude (@A_Jude) August 16, 2013
