Fall Camp: Tuesday Practice Report

SEATTLE - The Washington Huskies took it a bit easy Tuesday afternoon, as they headed to the Dempsey Indoor to go through their paces after going through a Monday scrimmage session. They were in shorts and helmets and practiced for roughly an hour and a half in pretty muggy conditions.

Coleman Shelton was working with the ones Tuesday at right tackle, and was backed up by Andrew Kirkland. Junior walk-on tackle Ross Dolbec was moved inside and played with the number twos at right guard. The rest of the number one and number offensive line remained unchanged.

Defensively, Keishawn Bierria got a chance to play a lot with John Timu and Shaq Thompson at the SAM position, while Connor O’Brien backed him up at the twos with Scott Lawyer and Sean Constantine. During practice Lawyer had a forced fumble on Troy Williams, but the redshirt frosh recovered the ball. It appeared as if Cyler Miles got looks with the ones, while Jeff Lindquist also got time throwing against the twos.

The defensive play of the day was a bomb thrown by Miles that was easily picked off deep by Brandon Beaver. Even though I’m sure he hasn’t had an interception every single practice, it feels like Beaver has been ballhawking all fall. At the end of the team period, the offense got their retaliation, as Miles found Darrell Daniels on a scramble play downfield that Daniels took to the house. The offense was thrilled, as the defense had to run gassers at the end of practice.

A quick special teams note: Tuesday was the first time I remember them doing anything in the kick return game. From the way they lined up, John Ross was getting help from Ralph Kinne, while Jaydon Mickens was paired with Jesse Callier and Budda Baker was with Shaq Thompson.
