Report: Austin Seferian-Jenkins suspended for Boise State

According to Seattle Times reporter Adam Jude, University of Washington’s star tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins will be suspended for the Huskies season opener against Boise State.

The discipline comes after Seferian-Jenkins plead guilty to a drunken-driving charge in July. He was sentenced to 364 days in jail, 363 of which were suspended. He paid a $695 fine and spent the night of July 15-16 in an Issaquah jail.

The 6-foot-6, 276-pound junior was 2nd team All-Pac-12 and 3rd team AP All-American last season, finishing with 69 receptions for 852 yards (both school records for a tight end) and seven touchdowns.

Seferian-Jenkins will return when the Huskies face Illinois on September 14th. The Huskies face Boise State in newly-renovated Husky Stadium on Saturday, kick-off is set for 7pm.
