Just five days remain until the Washington Huskies begin their regular football season against Rutgers, the first in a string of three relatively uninteresting September non-conference games at Husky Stadium. But at least the Scarlet Knights possess some intrigue, since they’re under new management.
Today marked the first game-week Monday press conference of the season for Huskies coach Chris Petersen, who spoke with assembled media for about 35 minutes. Here is all of what he said, including an update on which true freshmen will play this season, and the revelation that receiver Brayden Lenius won’t play in UW’s first three games.
Sean Constantine, a fourth-year junior from Bellevue who figured to provide depth at linebacker for the Huskies this season, will instead miss the year after breaking his ankle during a Friday scrimmage, UW coach Chris Petersen said.
