The fall camp schedule indicated that the Huskies will have a split-squad practice at 2:30 this afternoon. However, the practice was moved to 3:30, and there are indications that the team held its first scrimmage of camp. In any case, whatever they did, they did in private. The Huskies haven't had an open practice since the first day of camp, and no more are scheduled.
When asked Friday, coach Tyrone Willingham implied that the team wouldn't scrimmage -- at least not a full scrimmage with game officials -- until next week. And he didn't mention anything about a scrimmage when we spoke with him today... although he wasn't asked again.
(Meanwhile opening opponent Oregon certainly did scrimmage -- right out in the open -- and here's a report from the Oregonian.)
Otherwise, there wasn't much news coming from Willingham's media briefing today. However, the coach did try to put the team's injury situation into context. He said he went back and checked how many players were hobbled at this point last season, and found that only two more are hurt now. He granted that the impact may be multiplied by having starters out, especially a starter named Jake Locker. But Willingham added that of all the players currently missing time, only walk-on receiver T.J. Poe is clearly ruled out of the Oregon game.
