Huskies notes: DeBoer on Penix's 'amazing week,' plus thoughts on CBs, RBs and streaming
Washington scrimmaged on Saturday.
SEATTLE — Washington held its second (and final) scrimmage of preseason camp on Saturday, again behind closed doors. UW coach Kalen DeBoer said it included about 75 plays — 15 or so fewer than last week’s scrimmage, as planned.
The next time the Huskies dress in full uniform and pads to play football, they will do so against the Boise State Broncos on Sept. 2 at Husky Stadium. It sounds as if UW made it through each of its major scrimmages relatively unscathed, though there have been a few bumps and bruises. Fourth-year offensive lineman Gaard Memmelaar, for example, appears to be nursing some kind of leg injury, and receiver Giles Jackson has been sidelined by a thumb injury (and might redshirt this season). There could be a few others, too.
Mostly, UW appears to be heading into the preseason’s final two weeks in as good of health as a college football team can hope for.
“We still have a day of full pads or two that we can get some extra work in, if we really feel it’s necessary,” DeBoer said.
Read on for other notes from DeBoer, including news of another freshman suspension, thoughts on the cornerback competition, DeBoer’s take on a recent report about what led to Washington leaving the Pac-12, and more.
