Washington just wrapped another week of spring practice. You can see Saturday’s full take from head coach Steve Sarkisian above. On to the quick-hitters from the day:

> Washington is getting a bit dinged up. Defensive end Connor Cree was hurt during practice today, as was tight end Evan Hudson. Running back Bishop Sankey, wide receivers Kevin Smith and James Johnson and linebacker Shaq Thompson all had light works days.  Sarkisian said none of the injuries are serious.

> Cameron Van Winkle showed good drive on his field-goal attempts. He and Travis Coons took turns kicking them.

> Kasen Williams, Jaydon Mickens and Marvin Hall were the trio returning punts.

> Offensive lineman Erik Kohler is still working his way back from injury. He said conditioning is the prime thing he’s working on.

> Keith Price was on point again today. He threw a corner touchdown pass to Kasen Willams who jumped and pulled it in with one hand. Williams told Price afterward, “It can be that easy all year.” Price also scrambled through a collapsing pocket and zipped a touchdown pass to Mickens after throwing a 32-yard completion from the right hash to the left sideline.

> Josh Shirley was a problem for the offensive linemen during drills. No one could deal with his speed. Shirley also did specific work on dropping into coverage, something he had trouble with last season.

> Sarkisian said he’s not worried about “1s” and “2s” at this point. He said in the new up-tempo style, just about everyone on the two-deep will play.

> Practice was pretty chippy. Some tackling which led to some battling.

> Former Husky Desmond Trufant was getting some work in after practice.
