UW Huskies spring football: Notes, highlights from Day 2

Huskies go indoors Wednesday morning for second practice of spring.

Notes from the Huskies’ second spring workout Wednesday morning at the Dempsey Indoor facility:

  • Jake Browning, as planned, made only a few warmup throws. He again spent much of the practice watching from well behind the line of scrimmage, mimicking the quarterback’s footwork after the snap.
  • The linebackers celebrated after breaking a blocking sled in half, in which Camilo Eifler delivered the final blow.
  • Absent Monday, QB Tony Rodriguez was back in uniform Wednesday and took most of the reps with the No. 2 offense. K.J. Carta-Samuels worked with the No. 1 offense and Daniel Bridge-Gadd spent most of the day with the third-string offense.

  • It was a productive day for the running backs. Myles Gaskin made the most of his few carries, breaking off…
