What happened: The Huskies held two practices, one in the morning and one in the late afternoon — going in full pads in the morning.
Sign here, please: Picture Day meant the annual lengthy line greeting UW quarterback Jake Locker. More than 300 people waited for autographs and pictures of Locker when the event began, and the line was cut off shortly after due to a shortage of time to get everyone through. UW coach Tyrone Willingham had the second-longest line. True freshman Chris Polk appeared to have the next-longest line.
Injury report: Along with Locker, RB Brandon Johnson and CB Byron Davenport each sat out the morning practice. Willingham said Johnson, the team’s projected starting tailback, is still struggling to recover from offseason knee surgery, while Davenport is ailing with an ankle injury suffered Friday.
“Brandon was a little slower today than we thought, but he’ll be OK,” Willingham said. “It’s just some complications with [the recovery].”
