The Huskies hit the field this afternoon in helmets, shoulder pads and shorts and with one fewer player after the departure of Curtis Shaw, seen heading up a road with a pair of duffel bags as practice was due to start.
A few more notes:
--- All of the players out this morning were still sidelined, with Jake Locker watching early warm-ups with his leg wrapped and arms crossed (though I'm told he did some three-step drops during the morning workout and looked pretty good pushing off the leg). Also out were Brandon Johnson, Josh Gage and Byron Davenport.
--- Juan Garcia was in pads but not taking part in any work, running steps instead.
--- Also sitting out early drills was RB Brandon Yakaboski, who had said earlier in the day he was still bothered by a hip flexor.
--- While the loss of Shaw leaves the team one receiver shorter than it was a few hours ago, there was no apparent move to add a player to that spot. Chris Polk remained working with the RBs. The RB depth chart appeared to read Polk, Willie Griffin, David Freeman and Johri Fogerson, in that order, with Johnson and Yakaboski out.
All for now.

Jake is right handed. His left leg (the injured one) is his plant leg.

I don't think he will be coming back. I had him in my class last quarter (a class that he was repeating by the way) and he never showed up football liasons had to constantly come to class and Coach Ty even had to show upa few times. He is a great athlete but in college you are a student athlete and he wasn't able to master the student part.

I'm really sad to hear what you reported. When they said Shaw's leaving didn't have anything to do with academics I was relieved, and happy for him. I was pulling for him because I was never sure he could qualify for UW with the SAT score that I saw. I was hoping he could apply himself and accomplish something like Garcia did. Maybe down the road he still can. Thanks for the report though.

Any time your see someone plant with their left foot and throws with their right hand its what we call throwing like a girl. At least a non athlete girl. You plant with your right foot, stride with your left, then throw with your right hand.
