Other than Austin Seferian-Jenkins being back at practice, little happened Friday night.
A day after having surgery on his right pinkie, Seferian-Jenkins was back dressed at practice. He had a protective sheath on his right hand and conducted several conversations during practice.
Steve Sarkisian said Seferian-Jenkins had a clean break of his pinkie and that there was no ligament damage. He also said the break was not at the knuckle. He was not clear about a timeline for Seferian-Jenkins’ return.
“I’m going to kind of take it day-to-day and see how this thing responds,” Sarkisian said. “I really don’t know.”
When asked if Seferian-Jenkins could play with a cast on, Sarkisian said, “I haven’t gotten that far. He had surgery (Thursday). We’ll see.”
Washington quarterback Keith Price was a little more upbeat about the possible swift return of Seferian-Jenkins.
“He told me, ‘I could play today, if I really wanted,’ “ Price said. “I told him, hey man, there’s no need to do that. He’s an extremely hard worker and I know that he’ll be back with us.”
> Lots of levity Friday night at practice. The Pac-12 Network was in town as part of its campus tour, which brought Rick Neuheisel back to Husky Stadium. Neuheisel is an analyst for the network. Washington played home run derby and otherwise took it easy in between seven-on-seven and 11-on-11 drills.
> The Huskies had a tougher and more extended practice earlier in the day that was closed to media. Friday was the last practice this season that will be open in its entirety to the media.
> Saturday is Washington’s last scrimmage before it starts install for Boise State next week.
