The Huskies will be without one of their main targets.
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.
