Notes, quotes from Chris Petersen’s first Monday press conference of the season

Huskies coach Chris Petersen met with reporters for about 24 minutes today, covering all of the topics you would assume a coach might cover on the Monday before his team’s season opener.

Practice report: Fellner out 4 weeks; Gilliland quits team

On the first practice with full pads, Washington didn’t lose a player to injury on Friday. But the Huskies did see junior linebacker Garrett Gilliland leave the team and received news that starting safety/linebacker Nate Fellner will be out for four weeks with a broken foot.
