SEATTLE - It was the day everyone looks forward to in fall camp; the first big scrimmage. During a day where over a 120 plays were run (give or take a few), the offense seemed to have a bit of an upper hand over the defense as Keith Price and Cyler Miles unofficially combined for 31-42 passes and three touchdowns.
The defense came back at the end with two interceptions, but by then the offense had seemingly won the day. But that wasn't the big news.
Seferian-Jenkins Out?: Steve Sarkisian announced after practice that junior tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins had fractured one of his pinky fingers Monday, and after examining the injury the doctors determined that surgery was required. Sarkisian said that ASJ could be 'out for a while', but then further clarified, saying he would know a lot more about a timetable for Seferian-Jenkins' return to the team at the end of the week after the surgery.

The Offense Takes The Day: Again, unofficially Keith Price was 17-22 with zero touchdowns and one interception. Cyler Miles was 14-20 with three touchdowns, two to Damore'ea Stringfellow and one to Michael Hartvigson, and one interception. Jeff Lindquist was 2-5 with zero touchdowns or interceptions, andTroy Williams was 4-5 with one touchdown to Antavius Sims and zero interceptions. I apologize for not having yardage stats, but stats were being kept by hand today and the up-tempo offense makes life hectic for more than just the defense.
a field goal. The twos were stymied during their attempt to run two-minute.
Position Battles Emerge: Colin Tanigawa and James Atoe both took plenty of reps at right guard today, and Shane Brostek also took some reps there with the twos. At the RUSH spot, both Cory Littleton and Josh Shirley are battling away, but don't forget about Hauoli Jamora, who is moving up the charts quickly. BothTrevor Walker and Kevin King got a lot of reps with the twos at safety.
