Report: Washington TE suspended for opener
Washington Huskies tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins is suspended for Saturday night's game against No. 19 Boise State because of his legal issues during the offseason, The Seattle Times reports.
SEATTLE -- Washington Huskies tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins is suspended for Saturday night's game against No. 19 Boise State because of his legal issues during the offseason, The Seattle Times reported.
The school had no comment on the report.
Seferian-Jenkins' status was thought to be in question up until kickoff, but he reportedly will be suspended after he pleaded guilty to DUI in the offseason. He also has a broken right pinkie and, as of earlier this week, had not been medically cleared.
Washington coach Steve Sarkisian seemed to be growing tired of being questioned about the status of his star tight end, snapping this week at reporters who were asking about Seferian-Jenkins.
If he doesn't play, the Huskies will be missing the anchor of their passing game. Seferian-Jenkins had six catches for 61 yards and a touchdown in the MAACO Las Vegas Bowl against Boise State last December.
"We're preparing for their scheme. Whoever they put out there, they put out there," Boise State coach Chris Petersen said. "Their tight end is going to be part of their offense, regardless of who's out there."
