Washington suspended tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins after his arrest Saturday night on charges of driving under the influence. Seferian-Jenkins sustained minor injuries in a one-car accident in Seattle. Huskies coach Steve Sarkisian said Tuesday that, pending an investigation that reportedly could take several weeks, the suspension will be from all team activities. "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," Sarkisian said, according to The Seattle Times. Seferian-Jenkins is listed in preseason publications as a possible All-American candidate in 2013. Last season, the 6-foot-6, 266-pound Seferian-Jenkins had 69 catches for 852 yards and seven touchdowns. Behind Seferian-Jenkins on the Huskies' depth chart at tight end are juniors Michael Hartvigson and Evan Hudson and sophomore Josh Perkins.
