REPORT: ASJ Suspended For BSU

ASJ out for Boise State?

Adam Jude of the Seattle Times reported late Thursday night that junior tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins has been suspended for Washington's 2013 opener versus Boise State Saturday night in Seattle. The suspension stems from a guilty charge of driving under the influence back in July.

HERE is Jude's breaking story on the suspension, sourced by a number of people close to the situation.

Seferian-Jenkins' availability was already up in the air as he injured his right pinky on August 12th and had surgery three days later. He had been suiting up for practices but had not caught a pass when the media was able to watch. He had not been cleared to play Monday, according to UW Head Coach Steve Sarkisian. When asked about ASJ's availability Wednesday, Sarkisian refused to answer any questions regarding injuries.

With Seferian-Jenkins out for Boise State - according to Jude he will be available for Washington's first road game September 14th at Illinois - the position will now be manned by Michael Hartvigson, Josh Perkins and maybe even true freshman David Ajamu. Seferian-Jenkins had 69 catches for 850 yards and seven touchdowns last year, while Hartvigson and Perkins combined for six catches for 55 yards and no scores.

Evan Hudson, who was a tight end last year for UW, was moved in late spring to the defensive line and is expected to start on Saturday night.
