Washington tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins has been suspended for the team's season opener Saturday against No. 19 Boise State, reports The Seattle Times.

Seferian-Jenkins will serve the one-game suspension after pleading guilty to a drunken-driving charge in July. He served one day in jail after 363 of his 364 day sentence was suspended. He also paid a $695 fine.

Seferian-Jenkins broke his right pinkie during training camp on Aug. 12 and had surgery three days later to insert a pin in the finger. He was medically cleared to play in the game.

He caught a school-record 69 passes for 850 yards and seven touchdowns last season.

More from the Seattle Times:

One source said UW coach Steve Sarkisian had initially handed down a two-game suspension for Seferian-Jenkins, but the suspension was reduced after Seferian-Jenkins met some of Sarkisian’s disciplinary “requirements.”
