After yesterday's sun it was more like football weather for the Huskies today as they began day two of spring drills under cloudy skies and occasional rain.
There were also 100 or so high school coaches in attendance, here as part of the annual spring coaches clinic hosted by the school.
And once again, there was E.J. Savannah and J.R. Hasty running steps, no change in their status as of yet. UW coach Tyrone Willingham said before practice that he would let us know when there would be a change, which he has said could happen at any moment. Willingham was spotted talking to each of them, a conversation that appeared pretty amicable, shortly before practice began.
Anthony Boyles did not accompany them in their stair running today, having apparently served his penalty on Thursday.
WR Curtis Shaw sat out some of the early drills, possibly nursing an injury of some kind --- Willingham didn't mention anything before practice.
Jason Wells led the team in its final Husky jack drill that concludes conditioning, looking like he's moving pretty good, though he's not expected to take part in any contact this spring.
We only get to see the first 25 minutes of practice, but early indications are that new defensive coordinator Ed Donatell is a little more hands-on than his predecessor, who tended to take more of a CEO approach to things.
The team was again in helmets, shells and shorts and will put on full pads for the first time this spring tomorrow for a practice that starts at 11:30 a.m. That one is open to the media so we'll hopefully have some more detailed reports.
