Over the weekend, Tacoma's News Tribune reported that Washington's Austin Seferian-Jenkins had been involved in a car accident. The sophomore tight end holds the school career record for receiving yards and touchdown catches, and he recorded seven scores in 2012.

Washington released a statement from Steve Sarkisian on Sunday afternoon: “We are aware of an incident that occurred Saturday evening involving Austin Seferian-Jenkins. We are taking the matter very seriously. Austin made decisions that fall short of our expectations for student-athletes who represent the University of Washington. He will be disciplined internally in accordance with team and departmental policies. We will continue to support Austin throughout this process, while also holding him accountable and responsible for his actions.”
