The Washington Huskies have suspended starting tight end . Seferian-Jenkins was arrested and cited for DUI on March 9; he indefinitelyrequired a trip to hospital because he ran his car off the road and incurred head injuries as a result. Police on the scene suspected that he hit his head on the windshield.
It is not yet known if this suspension will extend into the regular season. Following practice Tuesday, head coach Steve Sarkisian announced the decision, and added that "we will make the decisions necessary based on our team rules and our school's policies that are fair to him and fair to us, and we will move forward and we will support him."
Seferian-Jenkins finished the 2012 season second on the team in receptions (69) and receiving yards (852) and led all receivers with seven touchdown grabs. He earned second-team All-Pac-12 honors, and he is already the school's all-time leader in career receptions by a tight end, career receiving yards by a tight end and career touchdown catches by a tight end.
The Huskies open the 2013 regular season with a key non-conference game, as they host the Boise State Broncos. After that, they travel to face the Illinois Fighting Illini at Soldier Field in Chicago, then return home for a contest against Idaho State.
