Tyler ConwayFeatured ColumnistAugust 13, 2013

Washington standout tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins' status is up in the air for the Huskies' season-opening clash against Boise State after suffering a broken pinkie that will require surgery.

According to the Associated Press (h/t ESPN), head coach Steve Sarkisian spoke to reporters after Tuesday's practice and disclosed Seferian-Jenkins' injury. He underwent tests after suffering the injury during Monday's practice session and sat out a scrimmage on Tuesday.

"He'll be out for some amount of time," Sarkisian said. "He came out with a good attitude, doing all the conditioning work, all the fundamental stuff from a footwork standpoint but he won't be catching balls for a while."
