Washington quarterback Cyler Miles and receiver Damore’ea Stringfellow were suspended indefinitely by coach Chris Petersen on Thursday afternoon. According to a release from the school, the players were suspended due to a violation of team rules.
The Huskies are scheduled to start spring practice on March 4, and it’s unclear if there will be any clarification on either player’s status for 2014 by then.
Both players are slated to have significant roles in Washington’s offense this season. Miles completed 31 of 67 passes for 418 yards and four touchdowns last year and is expected to be the starting quarterback when spring practice opens. Stringfellow caught 20 passes for 259 yards as a true freshman and was scheduled to see more playing time in 2014.
If Miles does not return to the team in time for spring practice, Troy Williams or Jeff Lindquist will get the nod at quarterback.

Washington lost coach Steve Sarkisian to USC earlier this week, but the Huskies moved quickly in finding his replacement.

Washington quarterback Keith Price was forced to exit Friday’s loss to UCLA with a shoulder injury, and his status for next week’s game against Oregon State is uncertain.
Price’s x-ray was negative, but the senior will have a MRI performed to discover the extend of the injury.
Price left during the first half, but prior to his injury, the senior completed 10 of 18 passes for 181 yards and one touchdown.
In his absence, Cyler Miles completed 15 of 22 throws for 149 yards and two touchdowns. If Price cannot play, Miles would get the start next week.

Our topics in this episode:
• What was impressive about Clemson’s 38-35 win over Georgia and what would constitute of the Tigers’ patented letdowns.

we’re concerned about fatigue in the second week of September.

• Why Washington was the biggest statement win of the weekend.
• A request for really, really upset Georgia fans to contact the podcast.
• Why David changed his pick from Miami to Florida ahead of this week’s game and why Braden is feeling a little more confident about Miami, but still picking the Gators.

Washington has a huge game against Boise State on Saturday night, and it appears the Huskies will be without one of their top weapons. According to Adam Jude of The Seattle Times, tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins will be suspended for the opener.
The junior pled guilty to a drunk driving charge in July and was forced to pay a $695 fine and spend one night in jail. Seferian-Jenkins will be missed against Boise State, especially after he caught six passes for 61 yards and one touchdown in the bowl loss to the Broncos.
In his first two years at Washington, Seferian-Jenkins caught 110 passes for 1,390 yards and 13 touchdowns.
Seferian-Jenkins is the No. 1 tight end in college football, and his suspension is a huge blow to a Washington offense that hopes to get back on track after finishing ninth in the Pac-12 in scoring offense last year.

The Washington-Boise State non-conference game in Week 1 is one of the most-anticipated games of the 2013 college football season. Unfortunately, the Huskies could be shorthanded for that contest.
Tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins suffered a fracture in his right pinkie in practice on Monday. The junior will have to have surgery and his status for Week 1 is uncertain.
Not having Seferian-Jenkins in the lineup would be a huge setback for Washington’s offense. The Huskies still have quarterback Keith Price, running back Bishop Sankey and receiver Kasen Williams, but Seferian-Jenkins is the nation’s top tight end and would be a difficult matchup for Boise State’s defense. In the Las Vegas Bowl against the Broncos last year, Seferian-Jenkins caught six passes for 61 yards and one touchdown.
The season opener for Washington is a huge contest, especially since it will feature the rebuilt Husky Stadium and should give some insight into just how far this program has progressed under coach Steve Sarkisian. Needless to say, beating Boise State and getting off to a good start would relieve some of the pressure on this coaching staff.
Sarkisian hoping ASJ out for only "days" not weeks, but UW coach said he'd know more later this week.— Adam Jude (@A_Jude) August 13, 2013

Washington’s Husky Stadium was demolished after the 2011 season, forcing the Huskies to spend a year at the Seahawks’ CenturyLink Field for 2012.
However, Husky Stadium is rebuilt and ready to go for kickoff on Aug. 31 against Boise State. Don’t believe me? Check out the photo below.
Husky Stadium’s official twitter account (@HuskyStadium) posted this photo recently, showcasing the rebuilt and improved stadium for 2013.

New uniforms and helmets are the biggest craze in college football.
Teams are unveiling different looks throughout the offseason, and it seems one of the newest variations is a chrome helmet.
Baylor unveiled a gold helmet earlier this year, and Washington could be joining the crowd with a chrome look for 2013.
The school hasn’t officially announced anything about the helmet, but the chrome variation would be a sharp look for the Huskies.
Here's a look at the chrome helmet, tweeted by @TysonLossness
Personally, I love the chrome helmet. A big part of the helmet/uniform craze is to help catch the attention of recruits, and there's no question this look would be a sharp addition to one of the Pac-12's best uniform combinations.
