Washington tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins, a possible first-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, has been suspended for Saturday's opener against No. 19 Boise State as a result of a drunk-driving charge during the offseason, the Seattle Times reported.
Head coach Steve Sarkisian originally had suspended Seferian-Jenkins for two games in response to the arrest, which occurred last March. But he reduced the suspension to one game after Seferian-Jenkins fulfilled the coach's disciplinary requirements.
Seferian-Jenkins had broken his right pinkie finger during preseason practice, and that had limited his practice time. However, that injury apparently has nothing to do with the suspension. He had been medically cleared to play in the opener against the Broncos.
Seferian-Jenkins is the school's career leader for receptions among tight ends. He had 69 catches for 850 yards and seven touchdowns in 2012.
