What happened: The Huskies held two practices, going in full pads in the morning and helmets, shells and shorts in the afternoon.
Sedillo added to injury list: UW's injury list, seemingly growing every day, added another body as starting center Matt Sedillo sat out after suffering what UW coach Tyrone Willingham called "a minor concussion." Willingham said he didn't think it would result in a long-term absence.
Among other Huskies who also sat out Wednesday were QB Jake Locker (hamstring), TE Michael Gottlieb (hamstring), RBs Brandon Johnson (calf) and Brandon Yakaboski (hip flexor), and CBs Anthony Gobern (leg) and Byron Davenport (ankle).
None, however, are considered serious, and Willingham said that with 2 ½ weeks until the first game Aug. 30 at Oregon, he isn't panicking.
"I don't think it's any more injuries [than usual] in terms of your starters," he said. "Any injury is a concern. But I'm not overly concerned right now. These things happen. I think we will be OK come game time."
Johnson clears up injury: Reporters were under the impression that Johnson, the projected starting running back heading into camp, was sidelined while dealing with complications from offseason knee surgery. Instead, RB coach Steve Gervais and Johnson each said he is ailing with a new injury in his calf area and that the knee isn't an issue now. Johnson said the muscle "pretty much knotted up on me" late last week and began to swell. He said he thinks he could be back soon, saying "it's nothing major."
What's next: The Huskies will practice once today.
