Freshman running Deontae Cooper had no such issues breaking free for a 32-yard touchdown run on the Huskies' first 11-on-11 team series.
Getting up was a different matter.
Shaken up and helped to the sideline, Cooper never returned. UW coach Steve Sarkisian called the tailback's injury a sprained knee, and he would likely get an MRI on Monday.
Also, receiver James Johnson dinged up his ankle early in practice, and never returned, camping out in the portable-tent sick bay area.
Then there was the violent collision between receiver Devin Aguilar, on a crossing route, and cornerback Desmond Trufant in the team sessions. Trufant laid the hit, but got the brunt of the impact – so much, he had his bell rung and never returned.
Running back Chris Polk was rested again, but safety Nate Williams was a full participant in the night practice, which lasted more than two hours.
Here were some notes from the 11-on-11 scrimmaging, which was third-down situational from all over the field:
Locker was 7-of-14 in seven-on-seven passing.
