Report: Washington TE Seferian-Jenkins suspended for opener
The Seattle Times is reporting that Washington tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins will be suspended for the opener against Boise State.
The Seattle Times is reporting that Seferian-Jenkins will serve a one-game suspension after pleading guilty to a drunken-driving arrest in July. That suspension will apply to Washington's opener on Saturday night, when the Broncos, ranked No. 19 in the preseason AP Poll, enter the recently renovated Husky Stadium.
The junior tight end suffered a broken pinkie earlier this month, but The Seattle Times also reported that Seferian-Jenkins was cleared to play against the Broncos.
When the injury occurred, Washington coach Steve Sarkisian told reporters that Seferian-Jenkins would be out "quite a while." The Huskies coach initially said that Seferian-Jenkins' punishment would be handled internally, so perhaps his absence on Saturday was always part of the plan -- healthy or not.
Seferian-Jenkins was named to the CBSSports.com Preseason All-America Team, among other preseason honors, and is expected to play a big role in Washington's potential step forward in 2013. After three-straight seven win seasons, Washington fans are ready to see the Huskies hang with the title contenders in the Pac-12.
