The biggest personnel news of the day was that running back Jesse Callier was back and in action. The senior from Downey, Calif. was not at Tuesday’s practice due to some academic work that needed to be done, according to UW Head Coach Chris Petersen. That work must have been taken care of, because Callier was out there and working alongside Deontae CooperDwayne Washington, and Lavon Coleman

The biggest omission from the UW practice Thursday was sophomore defensive endMarcus Farria. The 6-foot-4, 235-pound Farria, who practiced Tuesday, was not at Thursday’s workout. Petersen was not available for comment, but we should know more on Farria’s status Saturday. 

Junior defensive end Jarett Finau from Kirkland was in yellow Thursday, not sure exactly the extent of what kept him out. He did practice on Tuesday. 
During practice, both Kendyl Taylor and Connor O’Brien sought medical attention. Taylor had an ice wrap around his right thigh, while O’Brien went off hobbling, holding the back of his right leg.
