Washington lays down the law with ASJ It may be time to get worried Husky nation. As reported by The Seattle Times’ Bob Condotta, the Huskies announced Wednesday that star tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins will be suspended indefinitely in the wake of his DUI arrest over the weekend. ASJ was charged with a DUI Saturday night after getting into a one-car accident in which he suffered minor injuries. The 20-year-old was reportedly placed on a back board with a neck brace, but received nothing more than a “bloody nose.” Per Condotta’s report, Seferian-Jenkins’ time away from the team has nothing to do with the injuries sustained, and is purely a suspension until the police finish their investigation into the incident.

After that, the team is free to try and lift the suspension. According to Condotta, the investigation could take several weeks. Meaning, Seferian-Jenkins will most likely miss the remainder of spring practices. Seferian-Jenkins emerged as one of the best tight ends in the nation last season. In terms of the NCAA, he finished second in receiving yards by a tight end (850), tied for most catches (69) and was sixth in receiving touchdowns (seven). He finished second in receiving yards and catches for the Huskies, but led the team in receiving touchdowns. Heading into his junior season there was a very good chance that Seferian-Jenkins—combined with the graduations of both Stanford’s Zach Ertz and Notre Dame’s Tyler Eifert— could emerge as college football’s best tight end. While ASJ will miss the remained of spring practices, there’s no reason to believe his suspension won’t be lifted post-investigation. It may not be the most moral decision in the world, but that’s college football for you. When asked by the Times about the incident, UW head coach Steve Sarkisian was quoted as saying: 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. It is disappointing and we miss him [Seferian-Jenkins] … Austin is a good kid. He made some mistakes but we will continue to support him. The Dawgs open their upcoming season on August 31, against Boise State. If ASJ is not back with the team by then, they will rely on junior tight ends Michael Hartvigson and Evan Hudson to fill the void. CLICK HERE TO CHECK OUT THE HUSKIES CLUBHOUSE PAGE AT NWSPORTSBEAT!
